May is here and so begins the slower months in south Florida. Time to relax, go to the beach, swim in the pool, travel, paint ,visit friends and family. The muse has returned to me after an extended vacation! and so it goes, my head and heart are into painting. Watercolors, one after another. you will see them posted here soon. When its working it all comes out right and not too much second guessing. It still amazes me to look at what I painted after I stand back because while I'm into it I don't see the whole picture. Happily painting for now.
Then a trip to Grand Cayman soon to catch up on some business, friends and some soca music. After that, really getting excited! I'll be painting in France with Lynne- my old - well she and I are not so old- roomie from RISD- we've decided to spend a few weeks in Provence and hope to catch the lavendar in bloom. We've rented a townhouse in Arles and then will travel to St Paul de Vence and back to Gordes where with some luck the lavender will be in full bloom. If its not, we can take artistic license and paint the fields lavender. Hopefully I will find time to update this blog with photos while I'm there. but surely the gallery will have many paintings of France next season...Happy trails to you. Enjoy the summer- it its summer where you are...
