Bonaguil, France

Bonaguil is actually a large fortress and this is but a piece of the whole. From a distance Bonaguil looks like a fairy tale castle. Walt Disney must have seen it at some point. I have been using my extensive collection of photos taken in France for subject matter lately. Could take awhile - there are literally hundreds.. 11 x 14, oil on stretched canvas.

Rambling Rose, Pujols France

I have been visiting France for each of the past few years, usually in late spring/early summer, and I have some great photos of roses and flowering gardens, and (my favourites), doors and windows. Each year I see different 'bastille' villages and they are all full of lovely colours and ancient structures. This year Pujols was one of the most picturesque places I saw. There were a good many photographs taken that day!
