Summer in Provence

9-Summer in the Garden in Provence with Frame-small

The warmth of bright sunlight fills the garden, illuminating the flowers and reflecting off an ancient cottage with blue shudders. A young woman relaxes, absorbed in a novel of romance and adventure, while surrounded by the beauty of nature and the scent of lavender.

Waiting for Matisse

15-Waiting for Matisse

As I sat in the restaurant gazing out at the Bay of Nice, I imagined what it would be like to have a conversation with Matisse, to learn about how he saw the world and his use of color and form. I then thought about how my surroundings would be transformed if Matisse were to paint this scene. Now imagine yourself joining her and Matisse, deciding what to choose from the menu, watching the sailboats catching a breeze and a village of white buildings reflecting the sunlight on the distant shore.

When Will the Party to Begin?

18-Waiting Patiently for the Party

She dressed early in her flowing white gown and even put on the emerald and diamond necklace and earrings. She reads from a book of poems found in the library and her faithful Calico Cat joins her on the cushions of the settee to relax until the party begins.

The Reading Lesson

Mother and daughter enjoy a reading lesson with a picture book after tea with a bright landscape of rolling hills and trees outside the window. Their white, Scottish Terrier sits at their feet and enjoys their conversation.

I remember all the wonderful times that my mother sat with me to read and enjoy the pleasure of learning. This painting is a tribute to her and all mothers who take time to be with their children.
