Our daughter Christina is over there in France. I like to think of her sipping espresso and nibbling croissants, but she’s busy studying and producing art, as well as having a good time.
She’s likely in a good place for art. Cezanne was born in Aix-en-Provence. Picasso bought a home there just so he could paint Cezanne’s mountains.
Here is Christina’s recent painting entitled “Sainte-Victoire avec le pommier epanoui,” or “St. Victoire with apple tree in bloom.”
As you can see, spring in Provence is way ahead of the coast of Maine. But how seriously can we take their winter when Christina also sends us photos of newfallen snow–on palm trees?
We’ll find out in a few days. See you on Thursday, Christy.
