Postcards from Puicheric, France

I am so inspired by the beauty in Nature around Puicheric that I 've taken to carrying some little postcards and watercolor crayons to record glimpses while on our daily walks.  Of course, the fresh fruits and vegetables, bounty from the land here, are an inspiration to the palette and the eye!  The red of the tomatoes and bell peppers encourage a feast for the eyes.  How about a painting in predominately reds!  The wild irises are coming out in full force of purples, magentas, soft blues, and yellows.  Just two days ago we saw the first yellow irises along the canal.  

To celebrate the creativity of spring everywhere in the world, I'm happy to send a postcard from Puicheric, France to the first eight people (I only have eight postcards right now) who make a comment on this post by May 5th, 2016.  Below are the images I have completed.  Simply write your comment and send me your address via my email so that I can mail it to you.  And hey, thanks for reading my posts!
