I'm in France again doing a paintingproject on the river Le Grand Morin. But in the meantime like to paint some little mini's from things around my stay. The last time I was here there was a very very old goat lady named Trix which I think deserves a little painting. I love that she had this totally saggy body with sagging hooves but still she was so happy of mind.
Some of you might remember why I like to send you a miniature with flowers on the first of july, it’s to remember a very special person and of course to celebrate life at the same time. This is an impression of a cornfield with flowers in France. Hope we all have a great summer!
Did you look for Bertje on painting 19 of the Happy France project? Well here he is up close. This little rascal ran away a few days ago and came back late in the night, totally exhausted. It took him two days to come to his senses, but here he is, all fit again.
This is the pigeonnier Villebourgon. It's a perfect place in which I'm living during my 'artist in residence stay' in France. In this area of Lauzerte there are more dovecotes. Before the french revolution it was only held for 'Les Seigneurs' to have a dovecote. After 1789 everybody could build one.
If you would like to have a lovely holiday in this pigeonnier in Tarn-et-Garonne look on the website gites.eu for information or look HERE

Around the same time last year we were able to wallow in the genuine 'winterfeeling'. I mean; sticky white snow, low temperatures and even some ice on the canals. I'm actually quite ready for it again. Are you?
'Skating Into Happyness'
acrylic on canvas 5x5cm (2x2"inch)
Rond deze tijd vorig jaar konden we ons wentelen in het echte wintergevoel, dikke plaksneeuw, kou en zelfs ijs op de sloten. Ik heb er eigenlijk wel weer zin in. En jij?

Yes!, the first daily-happy-mini-mail-project by lies goemans is completed. The second too:-)For two years in a row i've been painting a miniature 5x5 cm (2"x 2"inch) daily on this spot. It has been a tribute to lisette goemans and all other people battling a difficult struggle. The first year was not for sale and is now one big artwork of 365 miniature wonderments in paint.
i started a third new serie of 365 happy-mini-mail, again 5x5 cm (2x2" inch) and you can againbuy the paintings a day, first come first served!
