Here's a little note that has nothing to do with my painting but as mainly Americans visit my blog, I thought I could give it a try. My German cousin is urgently looking for a guest family in the US (except Florida and California) for her 17 year old son. The organization they have turned to in order to organize a stay for him during the next schoolyear is having great diffiulties finding a family willing to host him. Perhaps you would be interested or know of someone who might be? He is a very nice boy and an excellent pupil. Just write me an email if you have an idea. Thank you!!!

Hi Liza,

This is the scene that brought me to your blog in the first place. Just gorgeous! I guess Canada wouldn't help your cousin. I could probably find her someone in Toronto. Could you email me with the details if the destination can be Canadian?

How long is he wanting to stay. What grade of school and what special interest. Will ask around to see the interest here in Houston, Texas area if he is interested. Everything is bigger and better in Texas! Yes, we do have some cowboys, rodeos, and cattle around where I live north of Houston. It is called the Piney Woods because of the big Pine trees.

Wish I was at that table having some French wine. My favorite.

Hi Aliaena,

You are very welcome to have an apero with me at this table!
How about a weekend trip to the Dordogne?
