 ...... it was a treat to share a day painting together with  friends Jean Haines , Lindsay Berry  and Helen when I was over in the UK earlier this week with my daughters visiting my family. Jean's garden is a "picture" .... the day went far too quickly painting flowers  from life  in Jean's studio .Thankyou Jean.

Quelle joie de peindre avec des amies !
J'adore la légèreté et la grace des anémones qui se balancent doucementau vent. Ces quarelles toutes en suggestion rendent bien cette impression.
