Vignoble dans le Quercy Blanc

‘Vignoble dans le Quercy Blanc’
30 x 40 cm. Oil on Panel. sold

A passer-by on internet might well assume the white in this painting to be snow. But is not. It is something far more surprising…in fact, it’s white chalk, which gives the name to the region in the Lot called ‘Quercy Blanc’. A field of vines growing out of pure white stoney chalk. These things surprise me.

‘Daffodils, Vernal Equinox’
25 x 30 cm. Oil on Panel. SOLD

I’ve been watching these daffs from over the top of the computer, outside my studio window, & frequently wondering just when I can finally get outside (& play – not unlike how I felt at school too). This year, I didn’t miss to do so. Vernal equinox, green fuse.
BTW, the daff is Narcissus ‘Binkie’.

Whilst tracing genealogies, I’m happy to mention my painting tutor at Newcastle University Art School, Norman Adams( ex Keeper of the Royal Academy Schools), who loved daffs too. He was a great English artist. Here’s one of his watercolours.

Many people are kind to me. I ask for help & they help me. They give their time to me. I don’t say everyone is kind to me, for I know well the unkindness of a minority of people, hélas. May my heart know that these are luckily only a minority. Nice to be helped.
Of course, this painting is also a kind of ‘momento mori’. Tempus fugit. I thought as well that it’s quiet a ‘bloggish’ kind of a subject. This mularky of making a painting a day, a painting a week , well, isn’t it abit like a race against time? The rising clutter of days where we loose time if we are not careful. Tempus fugit.

BTW, the colour reproduction in the JPEG is rubbish. Still waiting for my camera but then again, I guess I have to be philosophical about waiting as well.

I know it’s abit silly to comment on paintings, so if this sounds pretentious, please just put it down to the turpentine.

The pink blossom is ‘Pëcher des Vignes’, a small peach tree that is sometimes planted between the vines.
