“Luberon Stripes”

“Luberon Stripes” 30″ x 30″ Oil on canvas – $3000

This fun and colorful still life captures a joyfulness in it’s bold and yet delicate floral motifs. In creating the painting I was inspired by some fabric I had that was called Luberon Stripes. It had a French Provincial influence that I really liked that came through in the colors and patterning.

The Luberon is a mountain range (which is referred to as a massif) in the South of France in a region called Provence. It was an area where a number of the old masters (ie. Van Gogh, Cezanne, Picasso) spent time. In looking at photos of some of the villages in the area I understand the attraction as an artist. The architecture and atmosphere is pure magic. There’s a texture and pattern that’s rich and full, encompassing the landscape and the villages combined in what I visualize as a beautiful motif.
