The end is near for this residency and oil painting portraiture has taken over, with a little still life branch touch up and a moment with the crow head piece owned by Mathilde, our Marnay-sur-Seine neighbour. Materialised from those in front of me are portraits now on my easel and hanging on the line. Thank you Charlet, Carlos, Sandra, Augustine, Mathilde and Jakub for letting me in a little into your worlds. It was a great pleasure for me to have you sit (and stand!) – thanks for those amazing moments. And with these portraits it seems like I have just blinked my eyes and time has evaporated. So time to leave you with another wonder, one of the artists that I have shared this time with. Do have a look at the work of Charlet Gehrmann here https://www.volksstimme.de/lokal/gardelegen/20150909/ausstellung-kunst-gehoert-in-ein-krankenhaus. She is from Germany and her drawings are a delicate discovery in the beauty of form and line, where myths, and people, plants and animals and the landscape all morph together into mystery.
