French Paintings and Texas Skies

French artist have a love affair with the beauty of the sky.
On my recent French trip, I found this moon-lit night by Georges Dieterle (1844-1937) .

I immediately thought of the skies in Texas....

On my first trip to Round Top, Texas 5-6 years ago..
heading to Marburger Farm Antique Show...
after driving 14 hours in a truck filled with French art and antiques...
on my last road, my last 2-3 miles... hovering above horses grazing early in the morning.....
a rainbow welcomes me.

I knew then, I loved Texas!

Whether it is blue skies and rainbows,
or sunsets that beckon you to grab the camera...
Texas skies deliver beauty.

French artists should visit Texas...
they may wish to stay!!

Come see for yourself...
