The Mairie and the Market

Lovely work Michael, not easy subject.

Well done, very good Michael.

Like the light and bright clear colours!

A complex scene well handled.

Another beautiful painting, Michael and the heat glows from this one.

lovely painting Michael so carefully worked

Thanks Shirley - one that 'worked' making up for the many that do not!
