How to paint a nude?

Dear Sir, Madame,

For the past several years I have rented near Gaillac, the Tarn, Midi Pyrenees

I’d like to connect with anyone one knows some one who wants to rent. (more…)

” ‘Tis not the gales but the set of your sails that determines the way you go.

It’s nearing time think of to weighing anchor, make sail; I would like to rent a property nearer the sea for at least a year.
