""Yvonne & Chantal Making a Visit ""

pastel 26" x 10" 2002

Here are my French mother, Yvonne, and her loving niece Chantal, entering a venerable church near Toulouse. It was recently restored, and the inside is equally beautiful. It has an exquisite statue of Joan of Arc and an exhibit of beautiful vestements. There are usually several older women in quiet contemplation in these old churches. I was happy to join them. More geraniums and flowers leading to it - they're everywhere.
