Fine Art Friday

"A French River Landscape"
Frits Thaulow

What stillness and peacefulness exudes from this painting! The colors are some of my favorites. 

Besides the peace and the colors, what captured my attention was the texture of the water. I've never before thought of water having texture until I saw this painting. Thaulow gave realism and movement to the ripples and swirls. And for these reasons, I'll be looking at more Thaulow works.
