Today we went to the first wine festival of the year in Blaye, the little city in the neighbourhood.

It was a sunny day, with a sky absolutely cobalt blue , the temperature about 21° .

There were a lot of wine-tasting sessions everywhere, big tables outside , where everyone could sit down ,eat, drink, meet new people, it was funny, it is the country!

When In the middle of the afternoon we came back home,we were glad to find several sailing boats on the river, in front of the house, towards Bordeaux, and enjoyed the remains of the day in the garden.


Well, of course, at that precise moment, the clouds arrive, but did not stay!

I painted only this morning, after “Narcissus” from JW Waterhouse.

  1. Hi Sylviane,

    This photo reminds me of the scene at my mother's property on the Ottawa river -- it could have been taken there.
