During my recent holiday in the Haute Provence in France I ended up hunting for doors and windows. Thanks to Pokemon my children were actually keen to go out and explore, and while they were hunting for funny creatures I hunted for picturesque doors and windows. The Provence is full of colourful, interesting, historic and pretty doors and windows (not to mention the scenery!) and I came back with quite a collection. I shared some of these images on my Instagram account and I would like to share them here as well.
I suppose this blog post is not very related to my work but even an artist takes a break sometimes. I absolutely loved the Provence (I had visited once before as a child). The stunning dramatic scenery, the picturesque villages, and the colours and antiquity of the area really inspired me. I had a wonderful holiday and now I can’t wait to get back to the easel!
