Market Day in Provence...in paintings.....
The lavender is sold in generous bunches, tidily tied with jute string, and piled up like explosions of purple. Done mostly with palette knife to capture the texture and depth of the stems of blossom, this painting measures 11x14, oil on linen panel. $350 unframed.
Speaking of piles...at the markets were piles and piles of herbes de Provence, a fragrant mixture of herbs for seasoning just about anything. These were little tulle bags, brimming with herbs, tied with dainty white ribbons. Oil on canvas, 9x12 $300
Last, but not least (actually there is one more but it's not quite finished), the baskets and baskets of just about every single dried thing you could imagine! This was such a challenge, both in composition and execution, to attempt to capture the abundant textures and colors of the French market. How did I do? 11x14 oil on canvas $350
Hello! My name is Wendy and I am passionate about oil painting! Whether in the studio or out in Mother Nature, I get lost in the experience of capturing on canvas the moment and the feel of what I am painting. I pour my love and energy into every single piece of artwork and I hope it shows! This blog is a place where I can use words to talk about art, painting, life, faith, things that make me laugh, and things that inspire. I love every response, so don't be shy about leaving a comment...
