One of the things I love most about including landscape paintings in your home is that for just a second, you can bring the beauty of that place into your own space.
This is the second tiny painting based on a site I keep returning to, Pointe du Raz on the coast of Brittany, France. I studied painting in Brittany many years ago and it has long been an important site of inspiration for me. The long stretched fields, the rocky Atlantic coast, the idyllic small towns - it all brings me back to the long, beautiful days I spent exploring the landscape, painting in the studio, and enjoying endless cafe au laits and baguettes at the local cafe.
This original painting is acrylic on primed paper, it has rag (torn) edges, and comes unframed. It would look lovely with a thick mat and a frame. It is also painted within an internal boarder, meaning, I left roughly a 1/4 inch boarder between the painting and the edge of the paper on the right, left, and lower sides of the painting (although some bleeding did occur).

Some pink and purple pencil lines are evident in the sky, as a result of an initial sketch

This painting is sold unframed - but would look wonderful with a thick mat and a thin frame (a 9x12 inch frame and mat with a 5x7 opening, for example).
