Village de Chabris , French series

I am working on two different blogs , wanted to keep all my French scenes together .

A quint village in the Sologne region, where not much is happening , still close enough to have Parisians use it for summer residence , some are only two room antique houses, ou "une petite maison ancienne "" maison de campagne ", Parisians don't stay in the city when not working . When I was painting this one , I was thinking , spring scene with the light bouncing on the building.
10x10 oil on canvas , $200.00, my email
