Up in the Air

This is a painting I did yesterday, en pleine air, as they say. Actually most of the time I was sitting in my friend’s car because there was so much wind. The title is “Ile Callot sous le vent”, a little bit of a joke as there is an island in Tahiti with “sous le vent” as part of its name, but it certainly didn’t feel like Polynesia in northern Brittany yeterday. It didn’t rain, but things can fall out of the sky anyway if birds are flying. Luckily nothing hit my painting, just my new windbreaker. Is that a blessing or a way of pretending something yucky is good?

We were participating in Couleurs de Bretagne, a painting contest which is free and goes on for several months all over Brittany.

Couleurs de Bretagne

I am not that happy with my painting. It looked like it was stronger when I was doing it, but now on the wall, it looks washed out. I am still doing very representational work. I would like to get more expressive. On the other hand, it is recognizable.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
