Provence en Plein Air - Part II

Cafe au Lait a Les Deux Garcons

Pepper & Plums
 Here are two more watercolor sketches from my Provence trip.  The Café Les Deux Garcons is in Aix-en-Provence - had to go there for its long interesting history of hosting many famous artists and others. I spent a pleasant hour there watching people and enjoying the atmosphere.

The Pepper & Plums is a sketch from my purchases at Le Marché De Cassis - one of the most beautiful open air markets imaginable. These luscious fruits were consumed shortly after the paint dried.

Both of these watercolors are in my new exhibit at The Left Bank Café, opening on Sunday, May 5th (4 to 5 PM) in Saranac Lake. On the left bank of the Saranac River. It will be a lovely party, especially if my young French-accordian player friend can come!

These are so pretty! I have been having a tough time with your blog since google reader went out. I think I have it resolved now!

Thank you - glad you're back! I'm still having trouble commenting on your blog. Your post a couple of months ago about the street poet at your farmers market inspired a new project for our arts organization - Artists at the Market. Not exactly original but something we need to do :-)
