"I represent the atmosphere and the emotions associated with a landscape

Landscape Paintings: New Mexico, Vietnam, Paris, Provence, or totally make-up places

Whether Flo de Bretagne represents an abstract landscape inspired by New Mexico or a French countryside landscape, Flo always uses a warm colorful palette. Among the places that most inspired her were India, Mexico and New Mexico for their fascinating colors and artistry. As to France, Flo was born and raised in France until she moved to CA in her early thirties. She goes back to France regularly to visit more places and also to show her work. In her French landscapes Flo shares her vision of France with small fields and charming little homes. In every case these landscapes are all imaginary. They don't pretend to represent a particular site and to limit the image to that specific spot but rather to leave it open so that the viewer can decide and let himself travel into his dream location, let himself be transported into space and time to go where he would love to go.

"Oh, the Places You'll Go!"

"Every time I travel my eyes are searching for inspiration in the various cultures I get to discover. And I always find treasures: a mural seen on a street on Holbox Island, a visit to a local museum, or simply the people's clothes and homes and their arts and craft, all of these new elements are stored in my brain until I am back in my studio where I incorporate them into my current work.

I'll never forget a trip to India I made 25 years ago where my five senses were so stimulated for six weeks that I felt like I had stored enough colors, patterns and artistry for the rest of my life. More recently I discovered colorful and stunning murals in Mexico. And I loved the warm and earthy tones of New Mexico.

And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street"

In all my landscape paintings I represent imaginary places. I share my emotions rather than an image of a specific and defined site. My landscapes are filled with souvenirs and feelings. My French landscapes for instance are a very personal vision of my country of origin. I am not trying to depict the real Paris or a precise region of France. My illustration of Paris is very whimsical with lots of hot air balloons, beautiful flower beds and dressed-up people. It all looks pretty and happy. In "My Special Place" I portray small hills, an old castle, and a tiny village with a church. It could be Burgundy or Champagne. It doesn't matter, it's somewhere I love, a mix of Provence and Burgundy.

I recently had a commission for which I had to combine some of Provence with the San Francisco Bay Area and the Atlantic Coast in France, all on the same painting!"

Can one tell stories with brushes and paint?

Flo de Bretagne could be a storyteller. In her landscape series she shares her souvenirs and her vision of places. She doesn't stick to reality and doesn't limit herself to a specific location but sometimes she combines several places to make her own unique landscape. Some of her landscape paintings are part of public collections and have been put in hospitals. They surely invite the viewer to dream and travel in space and time.
