Thank you all for your lovely comments. Your time here was also an incredibly enjoyable and rewarding one for us, expanding as it did from painting into sculpture and poetry and with much laughter interspersed within the more serious painting moments. Your enthusiasm for "Le Pichet" and the surrounding Couserans (both mountains and architecture) which you portrayed so beautifully in your paintings, is something which will stay in our memory for a very long time, and we too look forward to continuing our friendship.
