Bastille Day – La Grande Fête

Bastille Day

La Grande Fête

written by: Pardee Lowe Jr.


Color a-burst!
Quite a splash
Or rather splashes

Where’s the realism?
The impressionism?
The pointillism?

If this were Vincent’s only painting
He would be called a modern!

Hide and seek among the splashes.
Can you find the people with umbrellas
The fireworks?
The flags?
Quite a rout!
Exuberance overall!
