Au Revoir, Durfort...


My napkin ring...I really wanted it...
At the same time, I wanted to pack these ladies up and take them with me, too...


I really appreciated being able to look back and share our journal pages before we left. Most of us didn't finish and are still working in our books (which is a lovely gift as it keeps the week alive and fresh.)

Au revoir, Durfort (for now)... You were good to us. I may not have physically been able to take these ladies with me, but they'll always be with me and a part of that wonderful week in the South of France... Merci beaucoup, ladies. Merci beaucoup.

Our adventure continues with trips to Arles, Saint Remy, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris and back to London...more soon!

Durfort Part Sept our Last Day in the Studio

Our last full day in Durfort so we decided to stay in the studio and work!


As well as eat! Lunch was moved outside today as the weather was perfect:

After lunch, some of us took our journals outside along with paint markers and pens to record our thoughts and document the local flora and fauna around us:   


Reference notes taken during the workshop: 

This fold out page of mine later ended up getting cut up and turned into postcards:

Taking the trash out late at night in Durfort. Shhhh...

or else you'll wake the bats! (Not in the photo but they were there! Barnabas Collins was saying hi!)


Oh, how we didn't want it to end...
