A Day in a French Life...
by Kristin Espinasse

Oh, boy! What a morning! A "so-so" internet connection (half on, half off...), a half-day at school for the kids ( = half as much time to create this newsletter...), a half-night's sleep... and now a half-baked edition?

Let's hope not! Speaking of halves, or halvsies, enjoy today's photo-painting vernissage: half of the images are photos that I have taken, the other half are paintings (based on the photos) by artist Warren C. Plauche.

This is Dr. Plauche's second vernissage ("art exhibition") at French Word-A-Day (see the first one here and the story behind it, here). This one is titled "VerNaissance". Dr. Plauche explains that he wanted the term to translate to "true rebirth" en Anglais".  Learn more about this water colorist here, and if you would like to purchase a painting, you may contact the artist directly: wooney [AT] prodigy.net .

Click here to view the photo-painting gallery. One more note... I ran out of time and was not able to post the titles to these paintings. I hope Dr. Plauche doesn't mind if we turn this into a You Name It game. Please help me name these picture-paintings by adding your title to the comments box. The works are currently titled "A", "B", "C"....

Merci d'avance for participating in today's "Name That Painting!" (or "Name That Photo" if you prefer!)

Note: all photos are best viewed here!
