PIQUE-NIQUE (picnic)

black pencil on strong bristol, 9"x12"

Every year,in August, we are lucky to share a picnic, with twenty-ish islanders of the Lake of the Woods, invited by Jan & Dave.
Dave cooks on the huge outdoor stone oven he built by himself, 2 years ago, Jan takes the head of the operations.Everyone brings something for the meal, and we are sure to spend a enjoyable afternoon;49% Canadians,50% Americans, 1 French, who, after a while, feels her mind confused in the middle of the whole conversations!.
For the moment I am still at home, in France, and I'll join my husband in the middle of next week.
So, I drew after a picture of Dave cooking last year.


  1. Awesome pencil work Sylviane.Its so close to a black and white photograph.

  2. Gosh, you did great on this one! Looks like he is having a good time. Your picnic sounds like fun.

  3. At first glance, I thought it was a photo! Nicely done! Your picnic sounds trés fun!!

  4. This is wonderful - makes me wish I was going to that picnic!
    Thanks for your comment on my Daisy painting, Sylviane. Those are Shasta daisies, and they are a really sturdy perennial - have you tried them in your garden?


Thank you for your comment!
