Belle France

Just back from a wonderful trip to the Beaujolais Region, Southern Burgundy and Provençe, France.  Lots of sketching.  These are a few of my favorites, starting with hubby's luggage packed 5 days early!  Then to the long flight on Icelandair with a quick plane change in Reykjavik before heading to Paris. 

Loved sketching the vintage Citroen and several French delights such as white asparugus!  Then on to our gite in St. Saturnin-lès-Apt from which we spent 6 glorious sunny days travelling to nearby villages, taking in an antique fair and pottery market, and just loving life in the French countryside!

The Long Flight


 So Delightfully French

Our Gite in Provençe


  1. Wonderful sketches! Love Larry's luggage. Love them all.

  2. Love the four door blue 'du chevaux.' (my French spelling for the two horse powered vehicle is probably incorrect) The only person on Whidbey who has two cars like those in your sketch now rides his bicycle rather than drive his du chevaus to the market. I miss seeing them. They are so much a part of France.

  3. Thx, Kris, Mike and Lois. Sure appreciate your comments. And Lois, Lois, Lois!!!! You are SO right - it's a 2CV aka Citroën Deux Chevaux. You are awesome!
