Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

Two oil paintings and a gouache.

My last post on Painting in Provence. Two oils and one gouache.All three were halfway done in the field and completed afterwards. they were all done at about three in the afternoon on hot days with the cigales singing in my ears, which was typical and I have no complaints about that. But the ants are at their most active at three in the afternoon too! Or so it felt! I got bitten the  second I dare stand still and at some point I started feeling like I was knee deep in the movie “The Mummy”!

And some images from my four days…for more photos,  see “Provence” under Beauty of la France at Myfrenchkitchen.

  4. Beautiful all around. You have some inspiring scenery to work with. I loved the older guys around the table.

  5. Incredible work here – paintings and photos!

    I often wish I were a “visual” artist. As a writer, I can put images into words — but never on canvas or captured on film. I’m glad there are people like you in the world…


    Beautiful post!

    The second painting is my favorite. It is vivid and gives off the sense of a sweeping wind. Thanks so much for sharing your art!

    The photos seem as austere as the oils. Two mediums and one eye that translates both views extremely well. Still I think you are a natural right-hander. I like one of your expressions more than the other. The one that I don’t prefer is still exquisite. Wonderful post.I am so glad I saw it.

    Beautiful paintings, Ronelle, and I love the photos, too, especially those ones of the steps
    and buildings. I see such a variety of greens in Provence–or maybe it’s just that this Texas drought is making my eyes yearn to see a variety of greens? I feel so lucky to have you 4 sharing these times with us.

    Dear Africantapestry!

    Congratulations to being freshly pressed and your very nice paintings! I love the water ones. I know how difficult it is to paint outside, mostly because of wind or staring people (Ohhhhh, what are you painting?). But I love the light which you do not get inside.

    I will have a look at the other ones as well! Thanks for your inspiration!
