Touring and painting in Provence

It was a truly wonderful week in Provence with Nancy Franke and 7 other painters! See for yourself….

Ack…. Not a great portrait photo but look at the gorgeous scenery behind our backlit group. This was part of our day in beautiful Cassis on the Mediterranean.
image
Dinner in the villa and our chef has prepared a sumptuous meal including this composed salad plate! Excellent meal…. another.
image
More spices… Wow colors!
image
Spices galore… Market day!
image
Linens on market day…. Color, color colors!
image
That incredible azure Provence sky is even more amazing in limited amount against the dusky ancient buildings.
image
Street Band… Excellent!
image
Market day and waiting for the full complement of the group to arrive. Lots of smiles!
image
Breda and Sally Ann share a laugh or fifteen!. They had a great time together!
image
More French SWAG!
image
Fab dessert with melted caramel and separately melted chocolate beneath cold creme topping ice cream, I think. Egads good!
image
Had lovely lunch here.  I noticed the intriguing partial photograph on the wall above our umbrellas…. I think it’s the ancestors of this chef/bistro owner.
image
And we’re touring up and down side streets and through narrow lanes. Always laughing!
image
I don’t think there were as many flowers in France as we’ve seen in Italy’s. Still beautiful… With or without flowers.
image
Very very old building somewhere in Provence. Cool, eh?
image
Once again Nancy laughingly confronts Christoph…. He’s down to his last nerve but laughs with/at us. Breda joins in the joy.
image
Saying goodbye to Christoph 😘
image
Christoph performs minor miracle and loads all our gear for the last drive to train station! He’s very special and we appreciated everything he did to make our week unforgettable.
