Busy times

Tuesday 17. 10. 17 It has been a busy week.  I was up at Mas Bellevue looking after Grappa for 3 days, went into Montpellier 3 times, twice to see doctors about my elbow and once to have lunch with Claire. Have just had time to do this sketch of the cactus that Daisy bought when she was here this summer.

Engravings

Saturday 07. 10.17 Went to a really interesting expo of prints this afternoon at the Musée de Lodève.

Besides Rembrandt, Goya and Piranese there were prints by Degas and Bonnard plus others previously unknown to me. Also techniques like Cliché Verre that I had never heard of! Well worth the trip paricularly on a bright Fall afternoon.

En vacances

Wednesday 27. 09. 17 Got back yesterday from my trip to Canada. I had planned to go up north with Alan painting but because of his hip operation we didn’t go. I visited Martin and Beryl in Merrickville and Rob and Heather in Nova Scotia though but had a complete break from painting. Looking forward to getting back into it now that I’m back home. This photo is from Nova Scotia.

Balade à cheval

Thursday 10. 08. 17 Went with Jacques for a tour of the canyon near Lac du Salgou. A great ride. I rode Roxanne but fell off as we were going down a steep incline about 500 metres from the end!!! Another memorable experience with Daisy – who didn’t fall off!
