vaudoy-en-brie [2007] oil on linen, 30 x 60 cm

another sunday morning brocante in another little village just outside of paris...

beyond the tables with their jumble of colorful plastic toys, stacks of chipped plates and all manner of discarded household goods, beyond the worn linens and torn lace curtains draped onto stone walls, old dress hats still in their tall round boxes, and insipid oil paintings propped up on the sidewalks, beyond even the odd coveted antique piece... are the rows of simple stone houses - as plain and stoic as the lives lived within them - now warming up slowly in the early spring sunshine...
