Crissay-sur-Manse, France

4"x6" Original Watercolor

Crissay-sur-Manse was my first taste of
a small village in France. We parked outside
the village and walked in. I felt like I was
going back in time, although I must say I felt
like that often on this trip. There were very
few tourists around, we had the whole place to
ourselves. The population is 115 people! And
I don't think we saw more than 10! It actually
felt like we were trespassing! The streets were
narrow and the buildings made of white tufa
stone, built between the Middle Ages and the
18th century. I can not get over the age.
I plan on several more paintings from this village!


I sold this one even before I had time to
frame it! 24x18 $2500. I am very proud
of this painting, my first large painting from
the France series. There will be more!!
