Our friends the Clement family of St Benoit (Dominic is the mayor) own a wonderful 200 year old farmhouse in the Charente called Grosbot - which means big wood!
We spent a lovely summer holiday with them. This painting is called Dominic, the teapot and grasshopper!
In pen and ink in my sketchbook is this view of the side of the houe with the open kitchen window - a perfect place for the kids to climb out and run away when there's washing up to be done!
