Mid century oil painting on stretched canvas of the French countryside with a chapel or church nestled snugly between rows of trees.  With its tasteful but limited palette of blue and green hues, this painting is quite different from the usual.  A grey slated roofed chapel or church is nestled in front of and behind rows of trees.  Impasto enforced oils, pressed into the canvas with a couteau or palette knife give the canvas texture.
