Gaëlle Boissonnard Joy and my Giveaway Winner.





When I was in Paris last week I passed a card shop and my eye was drawn to the lovely work of a French artist called Gaëlle Boissonnard. Aren't they lovely?


Of course I had to Google her as soon as I got back and I found even more treasures!





Yes I think I'd like a wall covered in these please.





Her work table. 

I love looking at other artists's workspaces don't you?


I haven't done much painting myself recently as we've been away quite a bit over the Easter holidays. It's nice to have a break but I'm looking forward to getting back to it.



And now for the announcement of my giveaway winner......


Thankyou so much for taking the time to enter, I wish I could sent you all prizes but I only have the one set of charcoals and just the one watercolour painting that I pictured!
Well done to......


They will be on their way to you as soon as I have your address. :)


Bye for now.
xx

Dear Jess, I can't believe I am the winner! I'm so, so happy! Today I don't feel well, my mood is low, I have some problems... I was for an hour round-about the town, but I took just a few photos, although I had decided to shoot the lovely flowers growing everywhere...:( And when I came back home, I switched on the computer and read my name...You made me smile, thank you!

Yes, this French artist is very interesting, her website, too - I'm going to take a look right now, but first I'll send you my address.

It looks as if you have found a soul sister in this artist; her work is not dissimilar to yours. How lovely to spend spring time in Paris.
