A wee painting for a winter’s day..

oil on canvas
9x12in, 2011

Even a winter-lover such as I, who relishes in it's monochromatic pallet and the light's subtlety and nuances, craves a shot of colour now and then.

My neighbour likes to embellish the vineyards and yesterday I couldn’t resist the red and white icon of our ‘home and native land’.



  1. I love those warm pinks in the snow, beautiful sky the bold brush work is full of light and life in your painting Jan. You were inspired by the drapped flag that splash of colour on a winter's day, it is something isn't it!

  2. thanks again Caroline -yes i was inspired by the flag and how out of place it looks in the vineyard-and as you know intrigued as always by the colours in white
