It’s been a biblical rainfall here in these last days, so I’m painting still-life in my studio. The citrous fruits in Italy are now well in season and the colours are wonderfully cheering here when it’s gloomy.

Here is one of my small paintings that I did last summer, which is now sold.

My plan is to paint regular small paintings which will be for sale via this blog. I would love to paint one a day, but with our peripatetic life between Montisi, Tuscany and Prévinquières, SW France it won’t happen for a while …. maybe just one a week, for the moment.

Anyway, this is a test run for this new blog to see how it all works!
