Some dear friends asked me to paint something to go over their fireplace but were not sure what they wanted. She wanted something serene and restful, and he wanted pops of color! After thinking about them and their personalities, I spent time working 5 ideas together for a painting of a French countryside with hills of flowing color and a town with the rooftops blazing. The hint of sunset in the darker sky gives good balance to the vivid colors in the valley and in the trees. I used some new oils by Daniel Smith that were wonderful colors!
