  1. Sometimes it can seem like a small world – I met my husband in the Beaujolais region (though ironically he’s also English) so I have good memories of that area.
    And then I had a great uncle who moved back to France (one of my grandmothers was French but her family moved to England during the 1st world war) & he ended his last years in a lovely village on the river Tarn called Ambialet which I have visited a number of times. Perhaps you know of it ? I like the Tarn very much. You are right about it being crowded in the Pays Basque in summer – you have to cross the border (à l’intérieur) to escape the crowds!

    • small small world! Beaujolais, Tarn…may be one day we will meet at the local market!
      I dont think I went to Ambialet, we visited so many beautiful places in Tarn, and there are still many to be seen.
      And you live in a wonderful region!

  2. Hello Sonia!

    I’ve always been fascinated by the way you render light, especially in this painting whose light made me puzzled…because it rang a bell but …? I suddenly realized that “Bordeaux rooftops” seemed to have been painted during an eclipse of the sun! A partial one, of course! Great!
    And I love it!

    Thank you so much, Sonia.

    Nicole.

  3. Bonjour Nicole

    Now I know who your friend is as I had the pleasure of meeting her the other day! I must say that your English is putting me to shame with my French!!

    I’m curious about the eclipse though – it’s not something I was aware of at the time – perhaps there was an eclipse on Nov 27th when I posted this here? For me I was trying to conjour up that sort of haze you get in cities when it’s very hot which it was around the end of October & then it took me till Nov 27th to finish the painting.

    Merci beaucoup d’avoir pris le temps d’écrire ce message.
