Another Franglais

Monday 21. 10. 19 I have been busy this week with Christmas cards, Christmas paintings as presents, Poppy’s birthday card etc., etc. so only managed this one collage. Hopefully next week I can get back to my projects!


Friday 11. 10. 19 I did this small monoprint yesterday, which I then coloured, for my fellow table companions on the boat/bike tour.

The Netherlands

Tuesday 08. 10. 19 Just back from a week cycling with Jason along the medieval Hanseatic Trading route in Holland. We rode about 50+kms a day, slept and ate on a boat and generally had a good time and met some interesting people. The landscape was interesting too with dykes and woods, rivers and lakes but what was really spectacular were the cloud formations. Of course it rained most days but never all day. We spent the last weekend in Amsterdam and saw some good expos. The only downside was that I got my wallet stolen on Sunday so have been busy cancelling credit cards, and searching for replacement health cards, driving licence etc etc. Tant pis!

Busy week


Sunday 22. 09. 19 It has been a busy week. Marie-Pierre and Olivier dropped by en route back to Bordeaux from Geneva but I managed to do another Franglais and also worked on a couple of Whitton paintings.

Voyage Around My Room


Friday 30. 08. 19 I have finally finished this project based on Xavier de Maistre’s Voyage Autour Ma Chambre. I know – not very good photos but it gives an idea of the 4 “books.”

A Happy day

Sunday 25. 08. 19 I am very happy to share the news that Daisy and Leo got engaged last Friday 23 August. Congratulations!

And Poppy had her first driving lesson!

Musée de Lodève


Thursday 22. 08. 19 Went to an excellent expo at the Musée of landscape photos and paintings. I thought the deck chairs  outside the museum were an excellent idea!

Voyages autour ma chambre

Wednesday 21. 08. 19 This was inspired by reading the Xavier de Maistre book of the same name. It is quite big 154 x 84 cm. I will eventually make it into 4 books.
