I want you to see and enjoy these new impressionist paintings of Provence showing the ruggedness of the Provençal landscape, mountains, magnificent thunder clouds, the Mistral that brings unwelcome winds
to the crops and vineyards of the region, the glistening shimmering sunlight through avenues of Plane trees, early morning mists, the blossom of early spring, even wild seascapes of North West France.
Where do I stop trying to enhance the beauty of this French Region called Provence
A region of outstanding beauty and gateway to the South of France.
I want the Provence I represent to be sensual and aromatic, with morning mists,
shimmering light, and where intensity of heat is reflected in every stroke of colour used.
I want colour to intensify the drama of the encounter,
rhythmic use of the soft pastel to energise the surface used.
I want to remind the viewer that they are confronting a rough hewn
artfully constructed piece of work.
These vibrant and yet mellow paintings of Provence have been produced to give
a spiritual calmness of an amazing landscape that once seen in reality
you will find almost unimaginable to want to leave behind.
