The Gleaners - Jean Francois Millet
Growing up this was one of my favorite paintings hanging in the halls of the school I went to. I loved the colors and imagining what life might be like if I were one of The Gleaners. It was positioned in the hallway near the music room and if I sat in the right chair I could see it while we sang. A client mentioned it today and how she has always loved it too. She thought it'd work perfectly in her new living room since her walls are a warm golden hue. I couldn't agree more.
I was very excited for her and hopes she purchases it. I came back to work and looked up just to enjoy the feeling I get when I look at it.
While I was at it, I looked for other harvest inspired paintings.
Happy harvest time dear friends.
