We have had a lot of rain so the moment the sun came out I went to a small brocante and then the same day I went to a small village nearby and took these pictures to inspire more painting. I sometimes fancy living in a slightly larger village with a café. The Café in these images in owned by a Dutch couple. They open from 5pm and are also artists, Wim paints and Angelique makes ceramics. They also have cats and donkeys and I believe they have a gite. The café is rather beautiful with very old crumbled paving slabs on the floor and a big stone space with old french furniture inside. It's the old Boulangerie. I like the old Epicerie.
It was July 14th Bastille day, I saw a German man sat in the churchyard and that was it, very quiet.
