P1010012It is not a painting!
this is a test to check  the image,having problems with Blogger on old posts, where the images have disappeared.
It's not my car, I took this picture some days ago, in the neighbourhood, it's was on sale.You have to be small and thin to go in, but it's a nice car, it's a 4cv Renault, I suppose from the 1960.

I painted this still life for Rookie Painter, I was pleased to paint especiallly the metal of the kettle.

chocolate bar

oil on board 5x6in
This is the kind of sweet I loved, for example before catching a train, buying one at the railway's station, gare de l'est or Montparnasse, in Paris, for years and years..Being guilty each time, after, promising to myself it was the last time..
Now, I don't have a glance on those perfid things.Anyway, I don't often take the train ...!
This painting was for Calypso Moon Artist Movement, running by Alice Thompson.

in Gironde

oil on board  10x12in T
his  landscape was painted during our total lack of internet - a whole week-(we have had storms here which  were supposed having cut the link).
It's a few miles from our house, I took several  pictures last October, just after the grapes harvest.
Its is so pleasant  to drive or walk  here, without getting bored,  there are so many little picturesque roads  between the vineyards , with lovely points of view !
