Provence Dans La Lumière

Provencal light is magical.
Luminous and atmospheric with soft, soft shadows.
Perfect for painters.
Ask Cézanne

Ask Van Gogh
These wild flowers came from outside my door at arts in provence The pomme is c/o the reknown Sunday marché, l'Isle sur la Sorgue in Vauclus
Everyday utilitarian objects are beautifully designed in France. You can find a glass OJ pitcher in any supermarket for just a few Euros. The white cup & saucer Barbara gave me the simple white cup in Paris. After a splendid birthday lunch. The pomegranete I bought in Paris in May (was it from Morocco?) and the huge bouquet of artichokes came from the l'Isle sur la Sorgue Sunday marché.

And then there is Alma's cat!
