Framed Oil Painting on Canvas by deMoen is yet another rendition of the storied city of Bruges, centuries ago a bustling port eventually eclipsed by Antwerp, and connected to other surrounding villages and cities with a complex system of man-made canals.  The canals also pervade the city of Bruges creating a system of transportation and earning the moniker of "Venice of the North".  Here deMoen has accurately depicted the lush green canopy that is ubiquitous in the region, coupled with the quaint homes and structures along each canal, with hand-made stone crossings designed for foot and cart traffic.  DeMoen's command of color and control of light on the canvas are immediately evident.  We also see a simple boat just passing under the arch of the bridge.  The artist has used a broad spectrum of natural earth tones to indicate a clear early Fall day, using deft brush strokes influenced by the impressionist movement for a wonderful effect.  Survives in its original frame.
