Walled City
Oil on Canvas 60cmx30cm (Available)

The old city of Viviers, the pale walls iridescent in the early evening of summer.

On my jog around the UN House circuit, the cloud formation above Rock City hills, displayed the limitations of the sky I painted. In a friendly sort of, this is the creator, sort of way.

Being in France, in summer, with the sunflowers out was extra special, in this world where so many of the Impressionists created their masterpieces.
