"memories of a place"....

memories of a place
20" x 20" oil on linen

Some places bring to mind a flood of memories.  I posted a photo of this painting on facebook when it was still just a sketch and asked if anyone recognized it.  Immediately, I got comments.  And stories. Funny how just an image can bring so many thoughts and feelings to mind for so many different people.  Several weeks ago I was walking around Charleston  late in the afternoon when everything is lit by that wonderful golden light.  I wanted to recapture those magical moments in paint..... and a series was born.  It's life in the streets, ya'll :)

Here is the original sketch...

Il est toujours très intéressant d'avoir la chance de pourvoir admirer le croquis initial d'une oeuvre. merci pour ce partage.
J'aime son aboutissement, c'est une très belle peinture où l'harmonie des couleurs dansent bien.
gros bisous à vous.
