Une Lucarne on a Grey French Sky

 

The original painting included these 4 smaller ones: "Une Lucarne on a Grey French Sky," "Roofs and Chimneys in Anjou," "For Each Window, a Different View," and "Ring the Bell," on a 16"x20" canvas.

This project started as a study. I wanted to practice working with values, to get more comfortable playing with lights and darks. So I decided to stay with one color: gray, and to paint the beautiful architectural details of my childhood home in La Fleche.

My parents' home is over 150 years old; it is made of a beautiful cream-colored limestone, and topped with delicate ardoise (slate) roofs. I asked my niece to take pictures for me, and she sent me 300! So I picked out four, and went to work.

Meanwhile, my entire family was preparing for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. And what started as a study became the perfect gift! The original now resides in France, right in the home depicted in the painting.

The 4 parts are available as 4 separate prints.
