Every year in August we go with friends to a castle in Provence called Javon. It sounds glamorous, but is actually pretty rustic. As it’s far from everything, there’s not a lot to do, and I tend to sketch in the afternoon while waiting for everyone to wake up from their after-lunch siesta. While looking for something in my studio, I came across this collage/drawing done from a sketch of the table in the garden there. I must have done it this winter, when it was dark and cold and summer and the south seemed so far away. We’ll be back there in a month or so, and I’ll do some more drawing, but since I haven’t done any other art work today, I decided to post this now.
