The Art Bead Scene Challenge for the month of March was painted by one of my favorite artists, Vincent Van Gogh. I admit, I’ve never been to France, but I did have a pen pal from Paris when I was a youngster. The correspondence didn’t last very long. I didn’t know French and she didn’t know English. So it goes. Later on, I did study French in high school and I remember certain phrases, but I’m far from conversational with it. I do like the sound of it and would travel to France if the opportunity ever presents itself. Meanwhile, I’ll just travel vicariously via art and paintings and hang out in the Mojave eating bonbons and sipping french wine.
