French Door

This is an oil painting I did while at Dreama's workshop in Kentucky.  I'm trying to capture the essence of the scene without too much detail and keeping my colors clean.  Like I've said before, the French and Italians like a pretty entrance full of beautiful plants to welcome each person thru their door.  Funny, I rarely ever see anyone attending their plants, they just seem to magically be there in full bloom for the viewers enjoyment.

This is a lovely painting, Vicki! I visited Paris many years ago, and I, too, was struck by the simple elegance of the many beautiful entryways--always adorned with flowers. Hope you and David are continuing to enjoy life. We would love to see you again!

You know....I actually like yours better than Dreama's. She is such a dabber and I get tired of the childlike aspect. You have a combination of smooth and popped out both. I have recently purchased lots of transparent paints. Nancy Medina told me that's the most important change I can make to my work. So I believe it. They are really funnnnnnnnn. Mixing warms and cools has a new dimension. Don't you love art ? Always so much to learn and experience.
