Chartreuse


This painting is inspired by the Monastery of "Chartreuse" in France. It's nestled in a ring of mountains, quite hidden from the world. The monks do not talk. There was a film made about the monks which is interesting to watch, "Into the Silence". I say watch because there isn't much dialogue but it does give a glimpse of the monks' lives.

some nice paintings on your blog, I particularly like this one. the colours are so harmonious and just livened up by the red walls, drawing the eye into the chateaux
