This oil painting is of a scene in the south of France and is 20 x 16 inches. There are several things in this scene that tell you we're not in the US, but to me the most interesting is the fact that we have a woman herding cows into the barn while wearing a skirt! I also liked the angles of the old stone farm buildings and the little patches of sunlight on parts of the roofs. It was in the early summer and although not yet sunset, it is getting late in the day...which is of course why the cows are heading home.
