so there i was going down a google image rabbit hole and i found pictures of this beautiful château filled with flowers, and paintings of flowers, which lead me to French artist Claire Basler – and here we are. she lives and paints in her home Château de Beauvoir, “a natural choice” she explains (i mean, of course). and while her paintings aren’t totally my flavour, the way they compliment the dramatic interiors of this historic castle is very pleasing, impressive and kinda dreamy. also, how cool is that tree growing in the kitchen?!
I like daisies, fragile and passionate poppies, breezes, wind, grace, gentleness and its force, storms, the mystery of still waters. The vast sky in the puddles that line a dirt road and the tree that forces me to be silent, patient. There are magnificent ones at Beauvoir.
