Olive Grove in Provence
This is a painting that I did from onsite oil sketches from our trip to Provence last year. We were fortunate enough to be able to stay in the heart of the area with a friend who is a nun and lives in a beautiful abbey there. We stayed in the guest house and only had to walk out the side door to the poppy fields or the back door to the almond groves. There were beautiful fields and woods everywhere. Always in the background was the beautiful blue mountains that Van Gogh, Cezanne, and countless others have painted. This one is on auction this week in my ebay gallery. If you click the link below you can visit the auction and this will also give you access to my other paintings in the gallery and other auctions.
