2018 just starts and it’s time to pass good resolutions (play more sport, eat healthy…) but for me it’s also the moment to take stock of my year 2017. It’s was an amazing year full of beautiful meetings, new projects and of courses paintings!
L’idée de vous proposer un article sur les pommes m’est venue en regardant mon jardin. Le mois de novembre va bientôt s’achever et mon gazon est encore recouvert de ces délicieux fruits. J’aurais pu vous proposer quelques recettes à concocter mais je préfère laisser cet exercice aux talentueux blogueurs culinaires. Je me suis donc interrogée sur les expressions que nous employons au quotidien avec les fruits et surtout avec la pomme :
- La pomme d’Adam
- Tomber dans les pommes
- Haut comme 3 pommes
- Se payer la pomme de quelqu’un
- C’est pour ma pomme
My art classes give me the opportunity to meet wonderful people. Families, couples, travelers traveling with friends or alone, and they’re always curious to discover Paris differently. Coming from several countries all over the world : Japan, USA, New-Zeland… It’s always a real pleasure for me to talk with them. And to discover others habits and new stories from all around the world.
As far as I know, painting and art always held an important place in my life. My parents were loving art : paintings, sculptures, furniture, antiques…, there were beautiful things at home, when I was young. And they passed on to me their passion.
I’m always delighted to welcome people in my studio for an art class. To transmit to them my passion for the painting and to give of good advice. And I am very proud when they are inspired by my paintings to realize their own creation!
If you want visiting Paris, I’m sure you will like to see the Eiffel tower and eat a french baguette. And I think that you will love visiting Montmartre. Is one of the most famous district in Paris with the Sacré coeur Basilica and the “Place du tertre”.
Since few weeks ago, I have received in my studio, Mimi and Krystal, two charming americain’s women. They came to see my painting and discover my univers.
Every morning my day starts with the same ritual. Before my first painting class, I sit in front of my huge mug filled up with a nice steaming tea. And I’m reading my book. Always doing the same movements… I take a few sips of my lemon tea while reading a page of my Novel. It is so delightful! Of course, I’ve already read Balzac, Proust and Hugo and they are wonderful writers. But I like reading foreign literature as well and especially American books. My favorite at the moment, and you might know his work, is Ed McBain, “87e district”.
Paris is the city of love, art and food. If you decide to visit the city go to a typical french restaurant, go to a painting class and visit all the famous museums. And when you walk in the streets of this wonderfull city, look at the beautiful momunents around you, the typicals Hassmanian’s flats. And smell the delicious smell of bread of the bakery. You can also have a break on a bench near one of the little parisian fountains.
