Chateau de Bourgane Gardens

Chateau de Bourgane Gardens  SOLD
16" x 16" - acrylic on canvas
This small chateau was near where I stayed at Les Bassacs in Provence. The formal gardens and grounds are open to the public on weekends - so that's where we went one rainy Sunday afternoon, last month. I took lots of photographs and this is the first painting from that series. I loved the sculptural quality of the boxwood hedges. Hopefully I didn't get too carried away with colour - well - maybe a bit.


  1. I really like the graphic quality and colors in your paintings Patricia.

    1. Thanks, Nancy. I worked with this subject over a few weeks, and was really frustrated with it - but was happy when it came together -finally. I think the palette made the difference

  2. Cool painting. My son was in Prague this summer--beautiful!

  3. Thanks, Stephanie. Prague is great - just wish I had some time to paint, even draw!
