Postcards from Provence

Ooh La Lunch, 12 x 12

Well, I have been painting from photos this past 10 days, mining for scenes from France, and especially Provence, for the Bastille Day show and celebration at Huff Harrington Fine Art, here in Atlanta.  Not that I am central to this show of mostly French artists and work, but I have enjoyed doing some small "postcards" in the past, so I thought I'd do a few this year.  A week of travail -- I didn't have any images that captured my fancy, so I painted some that didn't, to poor results.  I then painted over 2 of them and I have 3 - 4 fairly decent ones now.  They are vastly helped by some lovely frames from my friend and artisan here in Atlanta, Munroe d'antignac.  Below are are couple of photos of other postcards in these new frames (sorry for the out of kilter shots).
