June in Provence, 24x12, Peter Mayle, palette knife paintings

"June in Provence-", 24x12, oil on masonite-, (Please click on the photo to see a better view of the texture.)Aout the Painting:
The first time I read Peter Mayle's "A Year in Provence" I laughed so hard that my husband came running into the room thinking that I was having a convulsion. I've read it twice since then, and highly recommend it to anyone who loves Provence, and enjoys the dry wit of a Brit coupled with first hand knowledge of the earthy pleasures that govern Provencal life.

This painting was painted exclusively with a palette knife so there are thick layers of juicy color and texture throughout.
