Parc "Buttes des Chaumont" in my Moleskine...



I have had trouble being around here, after the end of my students semester things came rolling over me. At least I think I have done what I'm supposed to until yesterday at least. Off course today new paperwork posed up on my desk. 
As I'm off now, I'm supposed to be productive with my own work, which I was the first weeks, but I also took a few week-end off, got ill, tried to get in shape back with yoga practice, then I got sick again. So this week, blocked in bed, I felt desperate not being able to do what I have to do and seeing doctors that don't tell me what is wrong. Well, I have to keep cool, maybe it stops. As long as I'm not twisting of pain in my bed that's relatively ok. I'm on my foot again.
Good news is that my son got admitted in his new school "number one on his wish list". So, we were really relaxed the week before thanks to that. 
Next week I have planned one week painting in Brittany with a painter friend and college, Carole Ann Melmoux. I just hope for some sun at last (France wasn't on that sunny places list this spring). I want to paint, paint, paint!!
The paintings I've been doing lately are larger than usual and I have trouble scanning them or taking shots of them. I also feel that I have to keep some of the evolution there might be for myself a while before I show them. I have to stay focused somehow. 
Well this was a little update, not a big piece of art here, just the last pages I managed to do in my Moleskine from the parc "Buttes de Chaumont" in Paris. A nice parc for a picnic or a rest, with hills and valleys (I exaggerate, but yes a little). 
Hope you all are doing fine and I wish the best for the summer season.

"White iris"...



Painting sold during my last exposition on Paris. The colors here can not compete with the original ones, only gives an idea. This is an iris I found in the botanical garden of Madrid during my stay there before going to Tolède. I did a stop there to see exposition with Andrew Wyeth and the Spanish Realists. Wonderful to see and the way I like to travel.

Thank you!!!

This week-end's Exposition with Isabelle Crocket, Jérémy Soheylian, Marc Folly and me is over and I feel overwhelmed with all the attention we got. So much in two days!!  Shared gestures, words, affection, generosity, admiration, curiosity, honesty, complicity, friendship, partnership... and new homes for our paintings!
Thank you Marc, Isabelle, Jérémy for inviting me in this adventure. Thank you Florence for hosting us. Thank you to all those who wanted to hang one of my and the other artist's paintings in their home. The look in their eyes warm my hart and will give me a good reason to continue.
Hopefully there will be a new one soon again!
