Part of a series inspired by Colette's journey through the french countryside. An abstracted foreground gives way to a small village scene, with the town church taking centerstage. Small houses and greenery add detail. "The artwork is filled with a luminous quality," says Colette. "The vivid colors are balanced next to the soft sky. A whimsical movement fills the canvas."

Colette Wirz Nauke gathers inspiration from her surroundings and memories and fuses them with her imagination. She has been greatly influenced by Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, especially techniques used by Monet, Cezanne and Bonnard. She tries to use similar approaches in her own work. Colette spends her summer traveling throughout the US and abroad in search of her next muse. When she's not painting, she enjoys visiting art museums and going to parks in search of cherry blossoms in bloom. She currently lives in New York.
