The weather has been really nice so I've been painting every day in the morning and the evening. This morning, I was in the clos normand and working on a painting of my favorite flowers: irises. While in the garden, a photographer named Jean Gaumy came to see what I was painting and he even took a photo of me (see below). He's visiting to take photos and I saw him last night in the water garden also.
In the afternoon, I took my first solo trip to the grocery store which is in a town called Vernon. It's not too far by bicycle and the scenery is amazing.
I'm also picking up some french and able to order fully in French at the Boulangerie. I gotta say that this residency has been absolutely amazing. Every single aspect of it is beyond belief. So grateful right now.
The bike trip to the grocery store is pretty spectacular.
