"Beinale" is a poignant oil painting capturing the serene beauty of a country lane near my grandparents' home. The canvas is alive with the afterglow of sunset, where the cool blues and purples of the landscape harmonise with the warm yellows and oranges of the sky, adorned with dark clouds. Each brushstroke carries the weight of nostalgia, drawing from cherished memories of quiet moments.
On the horizon, the Maritime Alps create a majestic backdrop, framing the boundary between Italy and France. The lane, bathed in the soft glow of evening, reveals a line of telephone posts guiding the way.
Lights twinkle in the distance, suggesting homes where people gather for supper or return from a day's work. "Beinale" is not just a painting; it's a journey into the embrace of a timeless, nostalgic landscape.
