Sippers arrive!

After an 8-hr. delay in Amsterdam (museum visits are good…), Sippers finally arrived in Provence in the wee hours of Thursday morning – and slept all day. Friday was wonderful, a perfect day with warm breezes but not hot. Painted with Margaret Hoybach, an artist from charleston (with the fresh cherries she just picked),ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage in the vineyards and lavender fields Imageat her gite here, then lunch (and wine!) with a friend of hers. The afternoon was spent shopping, sketching and exploring the ambiance of the tiny red rock hill town of Roussillon. I met Lucy and Lauren who painted in my sketchbook – and are now official Sippers. Next post: finished sketches!

  1. I enjoy your Provence trip along with sad that I can’t make it for a day or so to join you. enjoy the fruits and vegetables and soleil de Provence and don’t forget to especially listen to les cigales, which sound very different than any other place in the world.

  2. So looking forward to all your pictures. We were in Perne last May at the Olive house. Loved every minute of that beautiful area. Carole and Dale
