Friday 18. 09. 20 Had a good Franglais meeting today.

A Perfect day

Thursday 17. 09. 20 Went to the café at 10 for my noisette, came home, did my exercises, rode over to Lac du Salagou for a swim and then had a very pleasant ride over to St Saturnin to replenish my wine cellar. And tonight off to the guinguette in Plaissan for dinner. Quelle vie!

Farewell Yvonne

Sunday 13. 09. 20 Last Friday was Yvonne’s last Franglais. She leaves for Spain next weekend along with her husband and their 5 dogs. I wish her well in her new adventure.

Franglais lunch & it is that time of the year

Wednesday 09. 09. 20 We had a Franglais pot luck lunch last Friday chez Philippe to mark Yvonne’s departure to a new life in Spain. It is the Vendange so the roads are crowded with tractors loaded with grapes.


Tuesday 08. 09. 20 Finally finished this one today. I seem to have been working on it on and off for ages.

Beyond Cabrières

Saturday 05. 09. 20 This is the view of the hills beyond Cabrières

En Plein Air

Thursday 03. 09. 20 After yesterday’s experience I decided to go out and paint outside directly. This is an old ruined cabanon about half way between Liauson and Salesc.

Still Life

Wednesday 02. 09. 20 Decided to paint these fruit this afternoon. It was very satisfying to paint from “life” again instead of photos.

3D Franglais

Saturday 29. 08. 20 I have been fiddling around with this one all week. Finally finished it this morning. It is the first one in 3D.


Tuesday 25. 08. 20 Went over to see Jonathan at the Ronzier-Joly care home this morning and to give him some magazines. He was cheerful and in good spirits and asked after everybody. Came home and finished this portrait in oil pastels of my boulanger and his wife.
