More from Provence

Here are a few more of the plein air studies I did in Provence.  One is of the “Dancing Trees” in the morning light, the next is of the scene looking north from the wooden drawbridge outside Arles that Van Gogh painted many times, and the last is a little study of some potted herbs outside the door of the monastery’s dining room.  There was a warmth to the air in this region that made everything glow with a slightly peachy light.  Also, wild herbs grew all over the place at the monastery, and the air was always scented with wild thyme blossoms.  Pretty close to heaven, IMHO.
