Pigeonnier, Montbron, France by 

An old pigeon house in Montbron in the Charente region of France. I drive down this little road most days and only recently noticed what a good subject it would be for a painting. How could I have looked at this scene so many times and not notice it! Acrylic on box canvas – 30 × 40cm. Original for sale. Featured in Photo Realistic Artwork

    Another example of your beautiful, warm and sunny works Fran.

  • Thanks so much Lynda. I think it IS the warmth and sunshine that inspire me. I’m sitting here at my computer feeling very cold and uninspired at the moment. Perhaps I should move to where you are!

    Come on over Fran! Very mild and a bit humid here, but apparently going to turn cooler over the weekend – so HURRY UP! LOL!

    Bonjour Fran ! This is another amazing piece …you have a huge talent from this typical architecture to these beautiful colours and…i agree with you about the sunshine : it definitely inspires me too.
    At the moment the Bearn region all is so dull !….Bonne journée !

  • Bonjour Corinne. Thanks so much!

    Indeed a great subject, the colors and shadows are stunning!

  • Thanks Pamela. It’s beatiful here when the sun’s out, but cold and raining at the moment. Won’t be long though and I can get out and take some more photos for subjects.

    Such an incredible building, so beautiful, you really captured the character of the place

  • Thanks pinkyjain. Apparently the French have been keeping pigeons and doves in these purpose built houses since the middle ages. I don’t know how old this one is and no-one else seems to either!
