PORTRAIT OF A MEZINAIS
This is a hard blog to write because it's a difficult painting to describe. The subject lives at the C.A.T. residence in Mezin, which will explain the situation quite clearly to anyone who knows France well or has lived here. He was very pleased when I took his photo. He stood to attention and smartened up his clothing by smoothing it out, something, I presume, that he's been taught to do. He used to lead a donkey around the nearby lake before he retired.
I hope he'll like his portrain when he sees it on the exhibition.
