French Alleyway

A 9x12 oil of an alleyway in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume in Provence.

Arnheim writes, "For David Hume's notebook: One evening a young boy somewhere in the country banged with a stick against a telegraph pole at the very moment when all the lights went out along the Eastern seaboard because of a power failure.  He ran home to confess to his mother that he was to blame for the blackout."

I keep coming back to study this painting. I could see right away that it's good. Now I'm trying to figure out all the reasons why. There are many.

p.s. So far, I've flunked the robot test here 3 times. It's been a strange day...

It's a good sign that it's not easy to figure out.
