"A Taste of Alsace", 40 x30 oil on canvas, Strasbourg, France, Little Paris, paintings of Strasbourg

"A Taste of Alsace", 40 x30 oil on canvas

This painting was a commission based upon a smaller painting of the same scene that I did. The client saw the smaller piece in a gallery and commissioned the larger version through the gallery. I'll confess that I've been working on this painting for the past three months!

The reference photo for the painting was a photo that I took during a trip to Strasbourg , France in 2001:

I decided to give the entire scene a rosy glow and so I themed my palette around permanent rose. I do hope the client is happy with it and I am relieved that it is finished!
