A rare chance

A bit of fun, a rare chance to view…
This morning I visited the elegant chateau de Saurs with my painting at the request of the owner.
He has asked that I leave my painting in his reception for visitors to enjoy and possibly acquire.

We can do this as it is unlikely I’ll re exhibit The Gaillac Collection https://artfrickers.com/s-w-france/gaillac/ before next summer.

Christmas Spirit

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.

Castel de Brames, Alian Boullenger

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.
