This was a fun paint out day. This castle was located in a small medieval town in Cagnes-sur-Mer. I was happily squatting on someones front door step painting away when a guy on a motorcycle pulled right up and parked in front of my face. I could reach the back of his bike from where I was sitting. Yikes. I politely asked him to park somewhere else (in English) he politely replied there wasn't anywhere else left in town to park (in French). I was almost done anyway but that ended my painting session. Later I discovered he worked in a little shop where I went to buy something. He was so embarrassed and probably afraid I'd give him a tongue lashing, he couldn't look me in the face. Guess I'm pretty scary.

After a lifetime of doing everything but art, I have now put my love of painting as a first priority. I wanted to major in art in college, but was quickly talked out of it by my father who said I'd never make a living with an art degree. So, scared that I might starve, I majored in business but squeezed in as many art electives as possible. Upon graduation I immediately went to work and never stopped. Never painted either!!
I now devote several days per week to pure painting time and enjoy the company of many local painters. Current art memberships include: Austin Plein Air, Waterloo Watercolor Group and Austin Pastel Society.
