It hasn’t all been sight seeing in southern France. I have taken the time to paint as well. Here are a few small studies from the last few weeks.
I’m also including a photo of the front of our 3 bedroom Provence home. It is quite spacious, but very old fashioned. The house reminds me of the old Victorian houses I used to visit in Richland Center Wisconsin with my grandparents. The sinks are quite low. There is no shower, just a handheld spray. No microwave. A small old stove. Not a single sharp knife and old silverware that is quite tarnished. It’s like someone moved out 30 years ago and it hasn’t changed. It even has a bidet in the bathroom! It also has screens – a first for us in France. This is because this area has mosquitoes and the residents fear diseases from them.
Only 3 1/2 weeks left before we return to Seattle!
