Xavier Valls

This post is brought to you as part of Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday.  Click the button on the right to join the fun.


Instead of my typically "wordy" blog entry, I thought I would share a couple of paintings by Xavier Valls.  The choices were made based upon my being partial to windows, doors, and winding paths.  I like to imagine the possibilities at the end of the lane, around the bend, outside the window, etc.  It probably comes from sitting in a drab office cubicle all day.

I love the way Xavier uses soft and subtle colors.  I find them soothing.  I hope you enjoy these and check out other paintings from this wonderful artist.

  11. Beautiful. I especially like the second one. If I was naming it, I might call it "bringing the outside in." I like how the contents of the vase echo the view outside the window.
