Black Madonna of Chavenay

Black Madonna of ChavenayWhile in France one summer, I visited the idyllic town of Chavenay which is located out in the countryside outside of Paris in the midst of rolling hills and red poppies. In the backyard of a gorgeous bed and breakfast, we took off our shoes and painted in the grass and the warm sunshine.

This image of a tribal Madonna emerged. I think she wanted to join us dancing on the grass in our bare feet. The words on the painting say, “She Who Lives in the House of the Muse is forever held in the Heart of Love“.

Acrylic on canvas paper (heavy weight paper with a canvas texture and finish) 15×18 inches. Unframed.
