"Chez Chantal et Petit Georges (near Toulouse)"

pastel 20" x 13" 2001

Here is the fine old farmhouse that is being renovated by Petit Georges and Chantal, my charming French cousins. I just love the old tile roof; such fun to draw. I slept in the bedroom that used to be the stall for the cow, overlooking the fabulous view. There are geraniums and other flowers everywhere- Chantal's pleasure and our enjoyment. Sharing much more than a love of gardening, Chantal and I felt like sisters by our second day together and called each other ma soeur.
