I’m Feeling Country French!

Bonjour friends!  With springtime in the air (although we had more snow this week!) my thoughts are of the charming French countryside.

I’m trying to decide where to place this pastoral oil on board that I found in Normandy last Fall.  I like it in the kitchen for now.

It was such a neat experience finding and winning this piece at a respected French auction house.  This painting reminds me of the idyllic scenes in rural France and has me longing to return for more inspiration.

Being a country gal, I have a soft spot for pastoral scenes and animals in décor.

Cows anyone?  I found this painting at the same auction house.  (I realize you can see my reflection in the mirror!)

Looking at these paintings today has me in a giddy French Country mood as I prepare to return to France again in May.  I’ll share details about the trip later.

Blessings,

Kim

Beautiful painting, Kim! I think that would look good just about anywhere! Lucky you going back to Paris. I'll bet you are excited and May will be here before you know it!

You can never have too many cow paintings. Love 'em!

Kim, both paintings are wonderful finds. Can think of Normandy without thinking of cows, and the pastoral scene takes me back to the beautiful Normandy countryside too. Love the size and shape of each of these.
