At last back to the easel - sorry about the delay.
This last weekend we were invited to a wedding - and what a wonderful wedding it was!! For the nearly 200 guests, they had rented a real circus tent from the family "Zavatta", the most famous circus family here in France. So when we arrived in the early evening, this was the first sight we had of the festivities - a big, wonderful circus tent at the top of a huge meadow, next to a pavillion, where the aperitifs where served at the side of a swimming pool. The atmosphere was very special and we had a great night! I will be painting (and telling) more from that unique event!

Hi Liza,

Isn't this fabulous. The whole story elegantly told with great design and colour.

Love this.

Barbara, you are always so kind to me. Thank you so much. I am a bit sad that I don't get round to painting more often these days - one looses the contact to the art world very quickly it seems and I am grateful that you are as faithful as you are!
Thank you and have a good weekend, my dear!

I love this - I would LOVE to happen upon this scene in real life - now that's a good piece of art, to make one want to be there.
