An International Line-Up

Last year while preparing for the residency in the South of France, I thought how cool it would be to put together a chronological list of the great artists who worked nearby. Of course, I never did.

Last week, my friend Ellie Clemens who lives there emailed some info about her friend Gail's workshop. I poked around the website and was delighted to find -- ta da! -- THE LIST. I was a little disappointed that I was left off, but there are quite a number of excellent painters anyway!
Addendum: Along with the usual suspects of Dali, Picasso and Toulouse-Lautrec, the list includes Matisse, Gauguin, Derain, Poussin, Braque, Chagall, Van Gogh, Magritte and others.

It's a good link for a Monday morning . . . even if Art History is not your thing and . . . even if you are not going to France.

Geeze! Warn me when you're gonna do that! I've got to get one of those capes... you look so elegant! But I refuse to carry a big purse... what was this post about? Not about me? sorry...

Hey,I just thought we fit nicely in that chronological list of artists who had painted in the South of France! ;-]

Would be interesting to know what *those* artists would think about our joining their club/list. Or even walking on their road, for that matter ;-)

Hey, those guys were just like us - exploring light and color, expressing their enthusiasm for everyday things and occasionally pushing the envelop. They won't mind; I think they might just like us.
