Episode 26- Blown Away again

apartment5renovation, restoration, more inspiration

I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember, but apart from using landscapes in some of my allegorical paintings I have never been inspired before to paint views. All this has changed since we bought in France.





Both coast and country vistas now inspire me and I have a file of images both figurative and abstract in my head that I will put down on canvas as soon as the DIY scales back a bit and I have time to stop for breath and enjoy what is all around us here! sept13 071




No point saying I will wait until I retire  and take up painting full time, I can’t afford to!

Is throwing all this work, money & time at the village house worth it? Yes it is. This is the place.
