Internet on off

I’m able to use the Internet thanks to my good friend Mark, proprietor of the Hotel des Consuls here in Castelnau de Montmiral.

However I’ve lots to do here, part business, part fun and games 😀
Of the latter, Castelnau de Montmiral is being prepared for a 4 night music festival starting tonight with a classical orchestra from Toulouse then following on with evenings of folk and rock groups; to much fun?

Meanwhile in nearby Gaillac a major wine festival beings tomorrow (Friday) for 3 days in the park overlooking the river Tarn.
Just about every wine producer and many other artisans will be represented offering samples and bargains.
As at C de M, there will be good inexpensive foods, much inexpensive wine to try, music and dancing and at Gaillac, fireworks one evening.
And of course there is wonderful light and colour for painters and photographers.
I first came here in 1989 to study at The Painting School of Montmiral.
If your thinking about the school in this paradise, go for it NOW ! Francis is giving one more course this year then that maybe the last.
This Gordon Frickers art signature is on all my more recent paintings.
