The painting:

At Chateau de Lacroix, as is my way I visited several times, spoke with the people, took long walks and an intense look at the place.

The buildingas are a lovely complex however what struck me most is how very S W France, very ‘Le Tarn’ it is.

I recalled a not very observant person saying to me, the Tarn does not feel like  SW France, there are not many poplar trees…

That person should slow down and try looking !

I loved the particularly numerous poplars around chateau de Lacroix and the distant view of the valley of Gaillac with the Black Mountains beyond them which for me mean ‘Mediterranean’ a not very long drive away.

My intention is to see the ‘Vin, au Chateau, Gaillac’ series as a collection, an exhibition of sisters and brothers.

This is one of the reasons I have reacted very differently to each painting in this series.

Working up from location visits and studies, I have also used my imagination based on years of observation and numerous experimental studies made in this part of the Tarn province in the heart of l’Occitane.

I have chosen to keep the foreground loose, abstracted in order to focus our attention on the light, colours, textures of the vines and on the buildings and trees on this very South of France skyline.
