That's nice, like a dream... x J

I've sown some wild oats in my youth, but this beats the cake! What a gorgeous painting! Much better than me wild oats!

Have you met the ghost of Pierre Bonnard when you painted this one ? Barley sugar effect in the foreground, backlighting in the background.Delightful, delectable. And it seems that a quiet river with lavender shadows lovingly surrounds the houses and its incandescent trees. Heavenly. This canvas is a gem.

yes, a gem...

I can almost smell the lavender, feel the breeze... this is beautiful.

La vibration fine de la lumi�re au premier plan contraste avec la masse sombre du Luberon, le plan interm�diaire, tr�s nuanc�, accentue la profondeur, les couleurs sont tr�s justes, c'est une tr�s belle peinture


Why did you have never painted nudes? Not of course in an academic lifestyle ! but with your view; in nature, with subtle shadows and lighting effects; Peculiarly I have close to me Renoir, Boucher, Cezanne and other apparitions who say with me: but why?

Concrete city London, hot and humid : I keep clicking back to this exquisite painting !
