Un paysage avec des prairies en fleurs que j'ai hâte de revoir vite... l'hiver je n'aime pas trop ça!
Vous êtes une véritable magicienne avec votre pinceau...
Je vous renouvelle mes voeux pour 2012, afin que tout soit possible y compris le bonheur.
Gros bisous.

What a stunning painting, Claire! A beautiful site that holds the memories and ghosts from a horrific tragedy. Easy to understand why the tears flowed. I think they would for me too. And I'm glad you blog too!

Claire, I thought I commented yesterday! I may well be losing my marbles! I must say this is gorgeous and it is easy to see why the tears...What ghosts may be roaming here, what senselessness and sadness at the great loss of lives. A beautiful place and a gorgeous painting!

This would be a beautiful painting, regardless of the significance of the site. Such peace and beauty is especially fitting for a memorial though, I think.

We were away for the weekend to celebrate the New Year, and what a wonderful surprise it was to find all of these comments on my painting! Thank you so much - it really means a lot to me that you take the time to look at my work, and then make such encouraging comments!!!

Claire, a lot of emotion embodied in this painting. You do such a great job with the large foregrounds...very difficult to do. Beautifully done.
