By now anyone of you who reads my blog can see I enjoy the art of photography, almost
as much as I love painting.
On Sunday morning I took advantage of my second free day, and explored the cobbled
streets and winding stone stairways leading me to the upper reaches of Bonnieux.
But first, a quick "Bonjour" to the friendly and very busy baker, at the nearby Boulangerie.
He took time out from making the morning breads to sell me a yummy croissant to go with my coffee.
and so many more images to shoot.
Here is the final finished water color.
By the time I got my painting gear together, and made the trek down to our hotel, it was late afternoon.
Just enough time to get cleraned up, and meet the students.
Here we are at our "Welcoming Dinner," in the dinning room of our hotel, le Clos du Buis.
From left to right; Ellen, Holly, Donna, Cass, me, MJ, Jackie, Tema, and Judy.
The first of many wonderful meals and experiences to be shared in the coming week
