Last week we hosted the workshop of Stephanie Rubiano here at La Cascade. She had a delightful group who made wonderful figure assemblages which you can see Here. It was a lovey week of treasure hunting and art-making. Loved going into the studio to see their art journey during the week.
I had a delayed birthday dinner at a fantastic restaurant close by- check it out HERE. I have heard for many years about this special place and finally this was the year I got to go with Dan and friends.The meal was the best and the evening was perfectly finished off by singing show tunes around an old player piano played by the chef!
Dan and I took a short trip away- we follow a concert series called 31 Notes of Summer which are free jazz and blues concerts held in small villages all over our region. The villages presenting the concerts (in July and August) also offer an activity of some kind in the village before the concert. We dove down towards the Pyrennes area to vist a cheese farm (le Tetu) and saw a fantastic DixieLand style Jazz band in the evening.
I’m busy painting walls ( cantalopue, coral, mint green), doing a little art work, trying out some new recipes with tomatoes and zucchinni from the garden and enjoying the lovely weather.
