There are places were the farmer's market goes on year around. The choice of vegetables is restricted in Winter but at least it is in season. In this painting i combined 2 sketches together to make an interesting scene. The woman is anxiously looking at the man's fumbling for his change. Some attractive yellow orange pumpkins on the side resonate with the man's bright yellow jacket. The purple jacket of the other man offers a contract like a vibration in the middle of a symphony. The background is non descript with a few shadows milling around. The merchant has his back to us and is just a looming figure with no face. This is the art of creating an interesting scene out of a very ordinary setting.
And remember: " Art is the best asset class right now"

This work shows a very good pallete of colours.
Well chosen and well distributed, they convey a well balanced and unified work.
The values are well explored.
It's a painting that will look great on any wall and will enrich one's home.

Best regards,

Being a psychotherapist I am always drawn to paintings with people interacting in their environment. Dominique captures the subtle emotions conveyed in this painting between a vendor at the farmer's market and his customer. The painting captures our interest with a common human experience with colors and shapes that are very pleasing to the eye.
