Stairway to Heaven
The inspiration for this painting came from a painting holiday I, and four other artists, went on to Limoux, in the Aude department of France, in 2013. During our stay we visited the Abbaye de Saint Hilaire.
I must not forget to mention the thing Saint Hilaire is known for. In 1531 the monks there discovered the first effervescent wine in the world, known as Blanquette de Limoux.
Here are a few of the other paintings inspired by this trip:-
Journey to Saint Hilaire
Fireworks at Carcassonne
Ame des Anges
France in May
