Rue de Vesle

Carole Hunnes Nielsen's avatar Carole Hunnes Nielsen

Rue de Vesle is a street in Reims France. It is my mother's hometown. This is a continuation of the French theme following my 2011 Artprize entry. I love everything French. The street lights are what attracted my to the subject. I enjoy painting pattern and repeating shapes. I paint using bright colors, often with complementary color schemes. The buildings are painted as lost and found shapes. I choose to paint subject matter as I see it and not necessarily as it really is.
