Inspired perhaps by the beauty of the abundance of summer that is all around me.
Or is it that I just enjoy relaxing & painting simple images on a smaller scale for the sheer pleasure of it.
It's hard to say why I return to a more figurative motif. Painting in France is for me a time to relax & renew. Perhaps, returning to the fundamentals is a way of doing just that.
What ever the reason, it gives me pleasure & I guess that is after all the point.
