Les Figues de Provence
acrylic on canvas
18" x 24"
Inspired by my memories of Provence, this painting brings together the beauty of lavender fields and stucco farmhouses, glowing in the setting sun, beside the dappled shade of a patio where pastis is sipped in the afternoon.
It was here that I fell in love with figs. Who knew that this humble fruit could be so tantalizingly beautiful inside? When I tasted them paired with caramelized onions on a pizza, I was lost forever to their charms.
