And after some time...

So there are supposed to be three more images, but the computer or the internet or something is being difficult...I expect it can tell I don't really speak German. So, you'll have to imagine some trees, my makeshift studio, and my kitchen. Sorry. I also appologize for the wretched quality of the photographs, and the fact that many of the paintings are photographed with masking tape about the edges still, but I imagine you get the general idea of what I've been up to.

Le vieux pont, Albi
(I'm quite fond of the bridge, the buildings could use some practice in the painting though...)


Aren't light-up mushrooms marvelous?

Let's just imagine they have lightbulbs inside.

Ruins of the Roman Cathedrale Cloister, I think... I may have mailed my notes on these things back to the States, conveniently, this morning.

Mushroom resting?

These are just in chronological order, as I completed them. I did them all in Albi, France. The landscapes, other than the city/river scene, are quick grisaille studies because I needed a refresher course in simplity. I still do. I'm in Germany now, Leipzig, and am soon on to Dresden and then Prague. I'm having a marvelous time, collecting toys, playing in the snow, learning to dance the mazurka. Although, I admit, I'm starting to ache to get back to a proper studio. So I'll get on that, as soon as I figure out where I'm going to live next.
