This is the first of what I hope will be a series of posts which I'll call "Painting of the Week". This one was completed yesterday, Jan 3, and is 24" high and 30" wide. It is a scene of a country road in southern France...these roads are very often lined with trees known in the US as Sycamores, in England as Plane Trees and in France as Platanes. I actually started this painting over a year ago and had not worked on it since. I was not satisfied with the color and the edges between shapes but liked the composition, so I added a new layer of paint over everything without changing the design.

I will plan to post a new painting each week when I'm not out on the road somewhere. So, keep checking for new work and let me know what you think.


  1. This is lovely! It makes me wish I were there.

  2. I love the shadows! This is wonderful, Rodgers! Can't believe such talent just in my own backyard (literally).
