This painting was done from a photograph I took of a house
in the french countryside..it was also done after I had taken
my first workshop with Mel Stabin. Workshops are so valuable.
You get to paint for full days...be it 3, 5 or if you are lucky
14 days in a row and you are surrounded by other creative
types, plus watching the teacher demonstrate is priceless!
The tower on this house actually served as another inspiration...
it later became the inspiration for an addition on our house
and now we have our very own "french" tower.
