Having finished my
painting, “Eguisheim in Bloom,” I lingered on not quite ready to leave this lovely little village and found myself strolling down one of its back streets.
Although the scene is more subdued than my painting, “Eguisheim in Bloom,” it has its own special charm. The narrow cobblestone street is sheltered from a hot noonday sun and invites the traveler to enjoy the coolness of its passageway. Like a moth drawn to the light, so is the traveler as they walk in the shadows drawn to the sunlight at the end of a tunnel.
When I reach the other side not only is it a passage through a tunnel but also the end of a delightful journey. With three paintings now completed of this fairy tale village, I am now ready to move on and head back toward Italy for my next creation. At least for now I say a fond au revioir to Eguisheim.
