A little less than 2 months ago, I promised you that I’d announce some great news soon. Today, time has come to lift the veil. In about 7 months, we’ll be living in one of Europe’s southern regions, where the sky on most winter days is looking like this,

where you can have a siesta on the terrace in December

and have tea and write outside in early spring, without having to wear a jacket and layers and layers of clothes.

We will be living in a small village, next to the river Verdon and rather close to the city where you can see this mountain (in the background)

that has been an inspiration to Paul Cézanne for several times.

From next autumn on, French Provence will be my daily canvas. I feel so happy and grateful as I have been dreaming of emigrating for years and years: I love the country of ‘du pain, du vin et du boursin’, its diversity in landscapes, cities and villages, its poetical language, its adorable nature and its joie de vivre.

Since today, one thing is for sure: the birds in our French garden will have a home

as soon as we will live in our new house.

Just like this little animal was about to fly away, I am almost ready to spread my wings and land in the adorable landscape of the Alps. Only the outlook on being there in less than 48 hours makes my heart sing.

In the meantime, I won’t be on the internet, but I’ll be participating in Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013 and use her prompts to treat my photographic eye with. In the second part of this brand new month, I’ll share the photos here, on my blog.

Wishing all of you a delightful month of August, filled with magical sunlight and bright colours, in the company of your dearest ones.

See you soon!

Much love

As I couldn’t stop because spring was too encouraging and because I still had some inspiration, I decided to work on another canvas as well. Here you see the result.

I had fun photographing my creation in different settings.

These are the former layers of this canvas:

What about you? Do you love to create outside?
