I am painting again. I finished 3 commissions for my kids (I will show you the one I did for Colette soon, if I dare, it is an abstract symbolic painting--a little weird.) and now I am on to my photos from Europe last fall. Chenonceau is a wonderful Chateau in the Loire Valley of France. It was my favorite Chateau of all because it was designed by women. All the rooms had a fresh flower arrangement in it. If I live long enough I will paint other pictures from here. This Chateau had a kitchen with the most wonderful copper pots, kitchen tools and old jars. This is a scene from the kitchen window.
