This painting is not one of the dozen pieces in the new show at Cafe-sur-mer in Metis. However, it is cousin to all the landscapes painted in the area. The spire identifies a rather large church in the really small town of St. Octave. I love this painting for its representation of the road leading to the town. For me, it is a slightly unusual example of surface design - a pairing of deep space perspective and the very flat surface treatment of the bottom 3/4 of the work.
