Saint Martin de Castillon a surviving medieval village ( left horizon ) painted from Auribeau with the French Alps to the northeast. Little quaint villages such as this are still peppered across the hills of Luberon in southern France. Traditional natives of this region are immensely proud in their culinary delights, including the one's that move on your plate.
Their ability to elicit flavorful and protein enriched pleasures from a variety of creatures though, should not alarm, because it has probably been cultivated and perfected over many thousands of years. In this region early human colonies found their feet in a world that was rich in abundance soon after the last Ice Age receded. Today some of these earlier culinary traditions still sport unimaginable delights, most of which I preferred to just look at rather than devour, despite frequent hunger. During the execution of this canvas, unsettled weather provided a clouded sky which deepened the colors of foliage in the foreground. An old rusted fence covered in wild grasses added some feature as well as a sunken ceramic wood shed in this garden.When grasses like these are wet, they exude a fresh quality to the day, bathed in enhanced light. Occasional light showers were no bother because of the early spring warmth which had come early to the south of France. Painting in this region is an en plein Mecca for those wishing to paint in Europe.
