We have had several goodbyes in the last few days. On Wednesday we made our final trip to the weekly market in St. Remy. It is perhaps the largest market we have ever been to and we never saw all the stalls. JP joined us on our visit this week.

On Thursday we said goodbye to our art bags. After packing, weighing, repacking, weighing, labeling, and waiting for UPS our bags left Le Petit Mas for their journey back to Seattle.

This morning we bade JP adieu at the Avignon TGV station. We had a wonderful time together this week. He coined a new word for aspiring artistes – artlings – which I like very much. We have yet to determine when one graduates from being an artling to being an artiste. Therefore we will have to reconvene this discussion at some time in the future.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.
