What did you do today?
Today I revisited Castel de Brames near Gaillac.
“Ces images sont un vrai cadeau de Noël, et sous le sapin de Noël …” ~ meaning ?
Thus the story of my day begins to unfold …
For years the proprietor, Alain Boullenger has invited local artists to create a design for his wine bottle labels.
He has a collection of the bottles.
Alain had not asked me for a wine label design.
When I tentatively mentioned this he said he asked local artists but could not ask a “great artist“.
I was nonplussed.
How was your Christmas day?
Did all your bells jingle?
Good for you and those you love I hope?
Christmas day means many things to many people; the basic message is peace and good will to all people.
I’ll drink to that.
Will you join me in that?
I was fortunate; a lovely day, warm under blue skies.
Lunch was by invitation of French friends who speak fair English at the ancient bastide of Castelnau de Montmiral.
What does your house smell of today ?
Mine smells of picture varnish.
A painting is not just for Christmas; from a recognised artist, a painting is an investment.
The surface should after 3 to 6 months be treated with 2 coats of picture varnish.
That is what I’ve just done for my “Château de Saurs” which 76 x 121 cm (30″ x 48″), oils on canvas, available, £12,500.
A merry evening !
Busy days, a selection of photos, everything except Cahors where i was unable to take a photograph, mostly these are from this West Tarn region.
That said, the first is from yesterday Toulouse hence the photo of Place Victor Hugo, a place very near where my meeting with a gentleman from the Toulouse Business Exchange was held.
Other photos, other places visited in the past few days and with a bit of luck and a following wind, back to the famous town of Cahors.
