gathering resource material

No painting for a bit as I'm in France on a bicycling adventure and am finding lot's of great scenes to paint - can't wait to get started - but first I have to finish my ride from the Atlantic to the Pyrenees - am halfway in Saint Girons. Typical of my luck in Paris there were many street cafes but no one sitting outside as it was pouring rain! Lot's of great villages enroute if I could slow my bike down to take a shot - some of our descents are death defying - of course we are not riding around the mountains but over the cols. Back to the easel in a week!
