La Fete

By Gordon Frickers on July 29th, 2018

Spoilt for choice, it’s Party season here with a capital ‘P’, ‘Les Fetes’ in the beautiful Tarn, every village, town and hamlet offers ‘la Fete’, you really are spoilt for choice.
Last night I chose the Quai Saint Jacques at Gaillac, a lovely spot I know well.

I’ve painted there several times, most notably the meticulously researched historic reconstruction “Port of Gaillac 1863″ and have several as yet unborn ideas in mind to two new gaillac paintings.

What ever, a beautiful ambience prevailed while most of the musique this year, and good it was too, was Arab/French and Afro-Caribbean.

Meanwhile I’m considering two new paintings of this part of Gaillac and I’ve an idea for Saint Tropez, famous for it’s classic yacht regatta in September, parties and Brigette Bardot way down on the cote d’azur.
Next on my list though, The Gaillac Wine Festival, 3 to 5 August.
