"Blanchisserie Fraiche…French Style" SOLD

“Blanchisserie Fraiche….French Style”
6″ x 6″ oil  on museum quality panel

How is it that even the most mundane thing— like laundry— can fold  itself into a thing of beauty when surrounded by flowers and stirred with the fresh breezes of Provence.  Truly some of the most simple things in life hold within them such incredible gifts.  The smell of blanchisserie fraiche (fresh laundry) brings a sense of wholeness and  hope–a reminder of the goodness of life. 

So today, as you remove the clothes pins from your laundry on your French balcony–take time to bury your nose in the scent of a beautiful life…who said doing laundry couldn’t be fun..:)))

  • Carol Schiff Studio - May 14, 2010 - 9:56 am

    Your paintings have something in common…they sing and there is always a light breeze in the air along with the beautiful sunshine (just like a spring morning). Alright, what I just said does not make sense, but, you get the point!ReplyCancel
