Taking time to observe the flowers close up, with their interesting black stamen formations, and delicate transparent petals that glow red like little stained glass windows… The French name for the poppy: le coquelicot All the while gathering up inspiration and taking photos I will use as references for future paintings in my studio…
Of course, taking time also for a sip of Rose’ and the fabulous Provencal cuisine at L’Oustalet in Lourmarin…A warm goat cheese salad with hazelnut crust a fine reward for hard day’s work! Merci Nade & FiFi!
All this travel is new for our dear Murphy…
What’s not to Love about French cafe’ life!
