When I look at this painting, the first thing that comes to my mind is blue, yellow, green and red; the four colors that create a natural composition for paintings. The building sits in the middle of the river, “Le Loir”, in my hometown of La Fleche in the Loire Valley.

The beautiful mill constructed in the XVIth century demonstrates unalterable charm. In this typical atmosphere in the Loire Valley, the river brings a natural quietness everywhere it flows. Blue, yellow, green and red share the space in a colorful harmony.

Now that I have lived in the US for 2 decades, I came to the realization that I used to bike by this mill everyday going to school as a kid, and I never glanced at it! I now want to give it the attention it deserves by doing what I do best: painting and telling its story from a French perspective.

Have you ignored the beauty surrounding your childhood?
