Hi everybody!

After a very stressful 10 days in wonderful hot Barcelona, I am now back in the studio. We had to find an accomodation for our 17 year old son who will spend his last schoolyear at the Lycée Francais there. Quite a difficult undertaking!
Anyway, back home I was very pleased to find my marigolds in bloom beside my studio door - voila!

Hehehe thats a welcome home you don't get every day. You painted it well, a little gem.

Well done!

Yay! I'm so glad you're back. I've missed your blog, and your paintings so much!!!!


P.S. We got our youngest off to school too. It is quite the production.

Beautiful gem of a painting! I've missed seeing your work. We just moved one daughter out to a new apartment & job- 8 hours away...yes, it does take a lot out of you as a parent! whew! Best wishes!

Thank you, René! I am very pleased you like it.

Hi Barbara,
I am also glad to be back! And I missed your paintings, too!

Hi Roxanne,

I am pleased you like it!
Yes, establishing a new home for our son was very exhausting, much more so than I expected. It took us two days at least to recover from it. Especially because we aren't used to the hectic pace of a large city anymore and then on top of that with a foreign language! Now I just hope he will cope - the level at school is much higher and the regulations much stricter than here in France and he will have to work very hard.
