I Blog about creating Fine Art, using Colored Pencils and also Oil Paints. Working in the studio as well as "En Plein Air", (In the Open Air). Come in and join the fun! My colored pencil work requires 20-25 layers of artist quality pencils. Trying to foster respect for artists who choose a nonstandard media is challenging. I hope this blog will show Colored Pencil deserves the respect from collectors and galleries as a fine art medium.

We were invited into a home with a rental apartment in it which was 12th century and part of the original ramparts of the walled town. Most of the place was below street level (down 3 levels), the rooms were catacomb like and a cool earthen temperature. The woman/owner had the cutest little Jack Russel terrier was very interested in our group of painters. Her rear balcony overlooked the valley and the hill-town across named Lacoste. A view to savor with a cup of morning cafe'.
So there you have it my first full non travel day in Provence. Dinner tonight is at the Hotel, family style with all 20 of us and the kitchen is smelling wonderful. Garlicky yummy! Mmmmm. I think my all day walking up hill has made for a good appetite.
Au revoir my followers,

Sounds great Gloria!! Glad you and hubby are having fun. Take care!ReplyDelete
Thanks Nancy but hubby's at home holding down the fort with the dog. He doesn't like the long plane rides to get to Europe. I'm here with 19 other artists (a Plein Aire group)to work and get painting references for our Provence show in November. Many different media like oil, mostly watercolor and pastel. But I'm the only staunch cp'er in the group.ReplyDelete
