I painted this landscape painting en plein air (i.e. in the field) in Lubéron, South of France. Later on, this oil painting reminded me of this very French expression: “Let’s put the church at the center of village life”. It literally means “Let’s go back to basics”. French love to say it when they argue and discuss hot topics like politics.

A legacy of the past. An iconic idea of the typical village of the French landscape. We have forgotten how many battles and tortures this has meant to our ancestors. But it reminded me that we can’t totally escape from our culture. Whether we like, or not.

This original artwork sold online will remind you that everything is a question of perspective. Or maybe you are looking for a gift that celebrates that essential is invisible to the eye.
