Vines near Mount Ventoux, Provence, France

Last year I did some painting in the south of France. This painting was undertaken close to the mas (farmhouse) that we stayed in at Aubignan in the Vaucluse area of Provence.  Mount Ventoux is famous for the arduous climbs it presents in the Tour de France.
The area is in the heart of the vine, sunflowers and lavender country. Strawberries and melons have such an intense flavour here.

Three Cherries on a Shelf

Christmas is cherry time in Sydney.
We had a box of very fresh & tasty cherries, and they looked so nice they just had to be painted.

The models were so tempting that they only lasted seconds after the painting was completed.
