|Sarlat Hydrangeas, 6x6", watercolor, $75|
7 of 30
Today I completed a secret pet portrait that is scheduled to be given as a gift this weekend to a lucky person (IMHO). I will post it Sunday after delivery. So I needed to paint a second painting to post today. It's really, really cold in Cincinnati tonight. I decided to work in watercolors since I am home, safe & warm. I can't work in oils at home because we have cats who get into everything.

I loved the hydrangeas of France, as well as the blue, blue pottery. While visiting Sarlat on market day, we stopped for lunch at this restaurant (displaying the hydreangeas) for a traditional mushroom omlette. The side benefit to sitting down in a restaurant vs buying your lunch at one of the many vendors is you get access to the flush toilet / restroom in the restaurant vs the crude public facilities. Well worth the money & wait (again, IMHO) The mushrooms of the region are amazing!

I am grateful for the many blessings of my life as it is today.
