"Cottage Blue and White"

7.75 x 7.75 inches
oil on panel

Blue and white ceramics always catch my attention. I have wanted to paint this grouping for a long time. On this evening’s visit I really liked the deep shadows cast by the near by lamp so much, I painted them. Great fun!

"A Cozy Corner"

8 x 6 inches
oil on wooden panel

Another painting from Normandy Cottage. I have wanted to paint this spot ever since my first visit years ago. This space, with its simple shapes, warm colors, light and shadows, is so appealing. It always captures my attention and I find the atmosphere delightful. 
Note: The colors are very rich but may appear more subtle on your monitor. Click images to enlarge.
