"Le Banc en France" SOLD

“Le Banc en France”
6 x 6in oil on museum quality panel
Nestled up against sun warmed stone walls, the white bench beckons.  Come sit a spell in this quaint French town.  You never know who will wander by and decide to sit with you to share stories.  Surrounded by a shady bower of vines, geranium scent hanging heavy in the air, friendships come easily. 
I know–you are curious as to why you are not in the picture.  Well, you just left to grab a bite to eat (fresh mozzarella with homegrown tomatoes) and share a glass of wine with a new friend …..Old benches, new friendships, just another ordinary day in France!

    Dear Dreama,

    I have been following your daily paintings for a few weeks. I love them all: the color, the texture, the atmosphere of vibrancy and spontaneity. They’re alive. I also enjoy your comments to your paintings, in particular this one to “le banc en France”. Your kindness paired with humor makes me smile 🙂

    Warmly, MonikaReplyCancel

    I do feel like I could be in one of your lovely paintings! Your descriptions of the nooks and crannies of France are wonderful to accompany your paintings. Love your colors and energy in each one!ReplyCancel

  • Julie Hill - May 21, 2010 - 8:29 am

    Dreama…another beauty! Yes, I agree with Susan, it would be great to hang all these lovelies together…but YOU CANT cause they sell as quickly as you paint them!!! well done!

    Ah….but someone could put a special order in, huh?ReplyCancel

  • Susan Roux - May 21, 2010 - 6:32 am

    Will you find a venue to hang these lovelies all together? What a wonderful display that would make!

    In a week Martine-Alison arrives for her three-weeks from France. You’ve put me in a joyful, playful state of mind with your art. I so look forward to her visit and join you in celebrating the casual, colorful that is France. While sipping French wine, we will wonder by to visit your continued series…

    Thanks again for sharing!ReplyCancel
