I pulled some older 12x16 paintings out of the box again and decided to re-work them for the next show.  

This first one is the town of Revest des Brousses in Provence. I did it from the back porch of the stone house we were staying in. And yes I did have a glass of wine next to me, where else but in Provence. I was there several summers ago and had a blast painting with some other artists. In the piece here I toned down some of the colors and brought up the contrast.

For the wine fields I added some more detail to the background hills and played down the figures in red. The migrant farm workers were too bright and popping right out of the picture.
