Le Petite Cabanon Provence, oil palette knife Landscape Painting

These little cabins are scattered throughout the Provence countryside. I wonder what they are used for, are they barns or for habitation?

About this Painting
I sometimes feel I put too much detail in the foreground of my paintings, so with this one I used broad swipes of the palette knife with the colours in the rest of the painting. The painting turned out quite high-key but I resisted the urge to tone it down as it has a nice lively look about it. Let me know if you think.
