dready in france



          dready s 'a wedding in france' - 18x16 - original on paper

last summer four of us set out on a journey from bordeaux to the south of france, by car, to go to a wedding ...

we drove down the valleys of the lot and the garonne ...

at the end of the road was a village that had been 'reconstituted' by a group of like minded artists 40 years ago and house over looking the vast tanned valley ...

and then a mas, an old farmhouse, with rooms to rent and walls that surrounded a series of 'gardens' ...

the 3 days of receptions took place amongst olive groves and gardens of grass and of plane trees. the bride and groom arrived on a scooter down the tree lined drive ...

mirmande is a long way from lloyds pen in yallahs ... it's across a cultural divide, as well as a gap of years; but i like the south of france, it's that same dusty hot dryness with good soil - and anyhow, am not a bwoy of yallahs anymore ... and probably really never was.

mais non!
