I simply adore the blue shutters (so "Mediterranean")that enhance the blue sky and the mountains in the distance. They're a sign of gook luck in Greece etc. One can see that you've been going outside a great deal. I whiffed the first aroma of Spring here yesterday -- light and darker blues "spell" ("smell"?) warmer weather. So cheerful....Merci!

My eyes fell immediately upon the stroke of orange, with brilliant light, (the small rooftop jutting out)-leading me meadering to the right of the canvas and to the tiny village perhaps, in the distance beyond- with burnt hills, then back around to the left with orange shrub-and to the front wall, up the lush green trees spiring into blue skies...and peace! Magnificient!

Gorgeous artwork! Especially like the small hot orange roof...it balances out the sunlit side of the house and wakes up the painting.
