Coming up on the first anniversary of my month long residency in France and the memories keep bubbling up. We visited the little book village of Montolieu near Carcassonne and I came away with a couple of souvenir books... one, La Mer, was purchased as collage fodder but it wasn't until this week that I actually began using it. I've created this long, skinny scroll type painting (20x72) that was just >>blahhhh<< sitting there. Made an edging of the French text which gave it another layer of interest. No photo of the work yet... later.
