The painters came to our home at les Couguieux for the first time! I was having a massage in my practice room while our group painted the poppy field at the bottom of the road. Some came in to our house for a pee or for a cup of freshly ground coffee from our slightly leaky Pavoni machine, or homemade (by Louis and I) elderflower cordial. Though the Madelene is, of course, incredible, it was lovely to have our group here at our home! Then, this morning, one of our three days off before the next week kicks in, Julian went back to the same site to paint, and Louis and I did some work alongside, making a house with an inner floral courtyard. Let's hope the poppies grow here every year!
