I was in Lourmarin in Provence on Sunday going to “the Carnet de Provence show” with 45 artists presenting their wonderful illustrated journals with mixed media and watercolour. What a treat to meet all these very talented international artists and their fabulous work. I met my Facebook friend Christian Couteau and enjoyed the fact that at last I could look at his carnets de voyage and meet in person the great artist !
I returned from this show so uplifted that I hought the best way to keep a souvenir from this great outing was to make my own illustrated page on a journal that I made myself with quality watercolour paper and hand sown pages too.
I chose Lourmarin castle and a bottle of pastis as a symbol of the good life in Provence..Cheers !
