Short Cut to the Mas

Short Cut to the Mas
Oil 6 x 6

Wintry temperatures and early darkness are upon us in New England. There is no better time to review and paint pictures from Provence for a little warmth. I saw this traditional provencal farmhouse called "mas" as I was walking down the road near the lovely village of Tourtour. Tourtour is referred to as the "village in the sky" and I thought the angled top-down view of the mas was unusual and fitting.

  1. Such a beautiful painting, Joelle! The path is nicely suggested, I love it all. And it brings back wonderful memories of our trip.
