Boules Players

Boules players in Cassis

I'm enjoying my visit to Provence as always. But with my new crutches, I can't do as much on foot sight seeing as I'd like, and so I'm drawing, from cafe tables, benches, and where ever else I can find to sit. Watching the boules players is great fun, and since they make many of their moves over and over, they make ideal subjects for quick drawings. I did about two dozen yesterday, my favorite being the guy in the upper right, who, by the way, is an excellent player.

Off to Provence

I'm on the plane, about to take off for Ireland, then Provence! I hope to post from there.

The first day I painted at the above location, the sailboat coasted in when I was nearly done. So here's version 2 almost finished, and I'm deciding whether to make the sky blue with a few reflections of it in the water. Any thoughts?

Blue Boat Study

Blue Boat Study
6"x8" oil on Raymar panel

You know how much I love this blue lobster boat. It's not in the water yet, so I pulled out a study I started some time ago, and just added the reflection of the cabin and fixed up the mooring ball. I decided to leave the background as it was. It is, after all, a study.

I'm taking this painting and four others to Yarmouth Frame and Gallery tomorrow, for their next show, "Winter Cowers as Spring Empowers". The opening reception will be from 4-7PM on Saturday, May 9th. I'd love to see you there!
