More From France

The church at Roujan the clouds were moving at an intersting speed that caused the illusion of being still and the building and statue moving, or it could have been the jet lag.

A mysterious door in the garden of La Masion Verte where we stayed for two weeks.

Our first day out in the field drawing. The French understand Plein Air, honking car horns enthusiastically when our little group of artists was sighted. Our leader said she's had many experiences where people brought her food or water and once a shade umbrella.

Another door at La Masion Verte, this one much larger and leading into the old wine cave now converted to an eating area.

From the Abbey Valmagne where the stone is softly pink and seems to sing.

Vinyard outside the Abbey, there are many tree lined roads, the shade tree being planted at the suggestion of Napoleon to ease and expedite the transport of goods (mostly wine).

You can see the problem with France is that everything looks like a painting.
