On our many trips to Kenya, we loved to watch the giraffes, ever so graceful as they munched the tops of the Acacia trees. But when standing still, all eyes on us, they seemed to be saying… “Who are you?” ~ Alice Williams
Featured at Bastille Day Show in Atlanta at Huff Harrington on July 13th This is a scene I enjoy daily during June living here in Provence. Lavender is certainly bewitching… so colorless up close and so vibrantly colorful in the distance, it is a joy to paint. More about this painting.

It’s a wonderful location as Lourmarin attracts many […]
