Take one sleepy rural village, add a dollop of Fauvist intensity, and reduce detail to the minimum. The resulting work is an interesting example of art which straddles the line between representation and abstraction, with neither side dominating. The arch in the foreground directs the eye into the middle ground by following the road behind it, but beyond these basic elements the piece is really about form, color and texture. This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.
