Another in the series of paintings from a summer on the canals of Northern France, this ancient church on the Sambre River sits right on the river beneath a tree filled slope.
Canals of France and Belgium 2022
Castle on the Sambre II
Aboard our boat Viking we cruised the canals and rivers of Northern France and Belgium. Chateau, forests, hills, water scenes at every turn. I depicted scenes such as this in a style mixing realism, impressionism and expressionism. This is a second version of this gorgeous and charming bit of history on the Sambre.

Half Timber Buildings, Compiègne, France
These buildings typically date from the 1400’s. They are best referred to as Tudor style structures. They developed in Tudor England beteen around 1485 and 1600. Often they lean to one side or the other these days, yet appear to be stable. This is one of the many charming views you can find in Compiegne.

Now it is an exhibition space. Currently showing photos by locals, some really nice stuff. A friendly elderly gent came outside to invite us in.
We were moored in the north of France during the weekend’s fun and games.
