Provence Windowsill a studio work from my 2012 summer trip to France

                         Provence Windowsill 12 X 16 Colored Pencil on Ampersand Pastelboard

The typical VA creeper we have in here seems to take on a much nicer appearance in France than in my our back yard.  Not sure if it's the ambiance of Provence or the variety they grow there.   The windowsill here from the beautiful town of  Lourmarin in Provence was a striking image and the photo of my piece appears to be a bit washed out here.  The original has much more depth of color, trust me.  I may have to redo the photo.  But needless to say the piece is finished and will be part of the UNOS Gallery show Nov. 2nd thru Dec. 29th (United Network of Organ Sharing) called A Splash of Provence. The group of 19 artists I traveled with to France this past summer will all be showing some of the work we produced as part of the exhibit.  A portion of the proceeds of each sale go to UNOS.

A very worthwhile cause to be sure and we are very proud to be showing there.  Some of the pieces are the very plein aire paintings produced in France and there will be some studio pieces also.  I will have both in my shown works at the gallery.  We have artists of all media showing and I hope it is a great success.
