"Le Pont de Gourg'e" ©

Early in the morning driving to the Parthenay's famous livestock sale and market I saw this view at a glance and immediately knew it was a painting that needed to be painted. Standing on the bridge built in the 11th Century, the surroundings were silently awaiting the warmth of the morning sunlight, I was smitten. A larger painting of this scene is warranted and I'll try to paint well enough to portray the serenity I felt.
Oil on Canvas, 12" X 12"

THANK YOU! I have been framing and picking out paintings for a show this weekend and I seem to find fault in every painting. I needed some encouragement this evening. Perfect timing!
