Wednesday 26. 10. 11 Finished this white van this afternoon. It is outside the old Citroen garage in St André de Sangonis. I have just started on what I think is the last in this series – a van in the canal at Clermont!
Saturday 15. 10. 11 Today I have been experimenting with some small monoprints of fish from the mediterranean. A couple of weeks ago I bought an old book from the French book dealer in the market in which there were some old engravings of fish – these monoprints are the result. I have done four so far and think I will do more and perhaps some in colour.
Monday 10. 10. 11 Just back from an amazing Thanksgiving lunch at Marg and Stan’s complete with turkey and pumpkin pie on the terrace in the bright sunshine. Delicious!
Friday 07. 10. 11 It has been a busy week. I brought David and Carla with Joan’s sister Mary-Ann to Clermont on Tuesday. David, Carla and I had lunch with Carol and then we had a tour round the lake and a tour of Joan’s studio before I took them back to St Mathieu. Wednesday went with the group to Avignon for the day and we saw an excellent expo at the Collection Lambert there. Yesterday evening I went with Kevin and Emma to St Mathieu where we heard all the artist’s presentations and Kevin and Emma interviewed Jacques and David.
Sunday 02. 10. 11 Last night was the vernissage for the annual Vendémiaire’s expo in St Mathieu. It was also their 25th anniversary so there were many speeches by all the local dignataries. It was an excellent turnout and the show is well worth seeing. I met my Irish friends Carla and David there. David is exhibiting. The show is onfor a week.
