I am sitting in the airport about to board the flight home, but I have managed to squeeze in another painting before I head home. This is the front steps of the home of a lovely, old lady in Sancerre, I went past her house on my way to the boulangerie every morning. I watched these young geraniums bloom during my stay. She did not want me to take a photo of them as the rain had battered them and they were not looking their best. The residents are so proud of their town and the way they present it. I have restored her flowers with the magic of the paintbrush to their full beauty.
I managed to catch up with all my new friends before I left last night, which was lovely, though bitter-sweet. They will all be staying until the end of the week, as will my traveling companion Sadhna, I can imagine their days as I make my way home. I will miss them all, particularly Sadhna, we have been together for three weeks now, she has become like a sister to me.
This is not the end of the pictures though, I still have four more to do, and have the reference photos, so I will stretch it out for a little longer and finish my journal. So pleased I managed to do so many paintings and quite proud of myself. When I get home I will fill the rest of the journal with photos that I have taken and will properly scan the pages for you all.
I apologies for the quality of the photos and I swear I will never travel again without a proper camera. The iPhone has done well, put my blog and its viewers deserve better.
Bye for now, I have 24 hours of flying to get through before I get home. The joys of living in Australia.
PS. I couldn’t get the airport wifi to work so I am posting this now that I have got home. A bit tired as you can imagine, so I am off to bed. Did two more paintings on the plane, but you will have to wait for those.
