JIM’S PAINTING TRIP TO FRANCE JUNE, 2017


THIS IS A 13TH CENTURY MILL IN GASCONY.

At the moment it’s full of Americans. There are eleven of them. From Texas. Painters and holidaymakers.  Enjoying the sights and sounds of southwest France, and of course the amazing French food. Strawberries, cherries and melons are in season at the moment.
So here are some of them just after they arrived.
Team shot outside the Mill with the medieval bridge in the background.


On the first night it was Eddie and Judy’s anniversary. Here they are with a "50 years is a long time" cake.
