The Simple Things

A beautiful painting of a simple thing...a bedspread airing through an open window.  I love this painting this is a typical French scene, the times I have driven from my village to the local town on a beautiful morning, houses with shutters and windows flung wide open, bedspreads, duvets, eiderdowns, dangling.  A simple morning ritual, played out all over France.

Elisabeth Baysset, the artist responsible for this painting, sadly passed away far too early, last month.  Elisabeth was an artist that I discovered through the blogging community, I think she was a huge talent, her beautiful works are a testament to her memory...

  2. What a lovely tribute to such a talented artist. I am sorry to hear she's passed. Thank you for sharing such wonderful contributions she made during her lifetime.

  3. Very beautiful...I love them all...a very talented lady.

  4. What an outstanding talent. Such a shame that I had not heard of her.

  5. Some very evocative pieces. She clearly had a love and understanding of light. What a shame to hear she has passed. Thank you for a lovely tribute.

  6. Oh Dash...I adore each and every one, you have captured the essence of everything that is beautiful and poetic...
