I have arrived. I had a safe journey. Thank you so much for all your well wishes.
I have opened all of the windows to let in the fresh air. Alas, no sunshine at the moment. The weather is over cast & rainy, but no matter I am very happy to be here.
I was greeted by my rose in full bloom.
There are flowers everywhere! The roses seem particularly beautiful this year. Here are just few examples from this little village alone.
I have not done much other than clean, sweeping away cobwebs & dust....
.....and a walk around the village when the sun decides to peep out.
I was so happy to see a little sun on the wheat fields & through the trees to the river. When I got home I found this lovely bowl of cherries from my neighbors cherry tree waiting for me. What a happy surprise! I feel as if I am home.
I am an artist. Painting in my studio where ever that may be. I divide my creative life between a studio in the SoWa neighborhood of Boston & a small village in the south west of France. Although I do the majority of my painting in Boston my heart remains in France. I guess I feel that I am always between here & there.
