Au revoir Paris

Geraniums on the door steps

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.
