I’m so happy to report that Jerry got totally inspired during our trip and got back into painting watercolors, both plein air and in our stateroom.
Sometimes he sat on a bench in a park, or leaned against a wall on a pier, or found a cozy cafe or bistro in which to paint or sketch. At other times he would set up a little studio on our veranda.
His sketch books on every trip are masterpieces unto themselves!
Here’s a photo I shot of Jerry at work on the painting you see above. He found the cutest bench – it used to be a sort of wheelbarrow – and sat down to paint a view of the little harbor at Honfleur. There were about half a dozen local artists all set up with their easels and oils, but it was Jerry who drew an appreciative crowd.
Now let me allow his paintings to speak to you…..
Here’s hoping he’ll hold onto this inspiration and start painting madly at home. He’s so talented!
