Saint Emilion, France #8 ~ Cobblestones

4"x6" Original Watercolor

If I have my story straight, these cobblestones
came from England on the bottom of the ships
for ballast, then removed and they loaded barrels
of wine. The cobblestones were then used for
streets. We are talking long long ago... they are
lots of fun to walk on and add to that the hills...
Going down was no easier than going up!
But what a memory.

This Saturday is the BIG Lititz Craft show.
My space was changed, I am on Broad Street
(Rt 501) in front of Dosie Dough Coffee Shop!
My advice is to leave the husbands home and
take a girlfriend, this show is huge with lots of
walking. Make sure you walk my way!

NEW 14x18 (frame) watercolor. As yet untitled!
I can tell you it is from Sarlat, France. I just
love the blue shutters and open windows.

Lovely painting Andy, the blue/red is really striking. It invites you in, makes you wonder. Beautiful!
