This evening, I was visited by the residency committee and three reporters. Whew! Lots of questions and conversation in French. Photo session and a little pear cider all around.
Here's a photo of me, the committee and the painting that they chose. "La Chaise Verte", 10x8", oil on canvas. "Plein de bonheur!" said the President.
So basically, I have 5 days left here. I can do what I like, everyone is going on vacation. I leave July 31st by train for Pris, and return home August 1st.
Martin will be in Canada watching Natalie's acting performance, and after that, they have dinner and see one more play.
I plan on making more paintings, and doing some pen and ink drawings over the next 5 days.
