EDM – art 26 & 27: A sign & something furry.

Two things I always have to do when I go up to Paris. I have to say hi to the Eiffel tower and I have to go visit the jardin de Luxembourg. It has become my two love affairs over the years. So what could be more appropriate than showing off the signs everywhere to be found in le jardin de Luxembourg.

EDM – art 23, 24, 25: Detail of a building, keys, cover for something messy.

Our porcherie(little pighouse) at Coin Perdu. A fairly dilapidated outbuilding here on the farm where the pigs were kept. It will be turned into something, don’t know yet what.

We have a magnitude of keys, some from the brocantes, some found in the attic, some dug up, some lost ones, some unknown ones and some…well, just some.

My shoes are covered in oil paints. I wear them when I go plein air painting and when I go to town. I wear them whenever, because they are comfy and being so colourful, they go with everything.
