THE POPE'S PALACE 16X20 1999

Looking up again with no absolute orientation. I am in the inner courtyard of the Pope's summer palace in Avignon. There were five or six other artist painting the vista from this high ground. I looked up and found my scene. I am working about an hour and notice behind me is a small crowd watching, including police and military. Though we don't speak the same tongue, I announce, " hah, made you look". They all laughed and shouted, "du accord"!
