A Postcard from (Four Go Painting in) Provence

A little ray of sunshine arrived for me yesterday - not from Italy as you would think coming from Robyn - but from Provence, where she was sharing an artist's holiday that we would all have loved to joined in on with Katherine, Ronell and Sarah. Looking at this, I can just imagine the four of them sitting over... café au lait..? a beautiful beaujolais..? (a bit early for that judging by the blue blue sky perhaps - or perhaps not), gazing out of this window - see another version of it here -  and talking and talking and planning what to paint and how to paint it, in oils, or watercolour, or gouache... It's such a lovely soupçon of their time together and a beautiful, bright souvenir for me to keep and treasure, thank you Robyn, I'm so happy to have a peep through this sunny window!

What a delightful 'you are there' painting for all of us who wish we were there! Beautifully written up, Cathy, tying together so many aspects of everyone's adventures in Provence.

Very nice card, full of Provence atmosphere!

Robyn Sinclair said...

Thank you all. One couldn't have found a place that deserved a postcard more than that little house near Bedoin.

Yes, Vivien - that's the jug. I fear you'll be seeing a lot of it in the coming years. Those two little stoneware bottles are gorgeous too.

The blue blue sky started early in the morning and lasted until we had dinner! :) After which we had some splendid sunsets!

Lovely to see the jug again and your little bottles. Not to mention the geraniums, the wall I became besotted with, the pantiles etc.....

I tried a while back to leave a comment but wasn't able to. I get another chance to say how wonderful this view is and how beautiful to see all these collected images from your trip. Lovely painting Robyn.
