During October 2019 I spent 3 weeks at the NG Creative Artist Residency in Eygalières, Provence. I enjoyed the opportunity to work en plein air and was inspired by the beautiful golden light.

The local hares frolicked in the gardens at Mas des Pelerins, a local wine farmer told me that was because there was no hunting on the property. They disappeared through this gap in the hedge into the adjoining field.

I came across this cat in the village of Eygalières. He lounges about in the main street, often outside the cheese shop, sleeping amongst the pumpkins. I found out that he is a stray cat, the locals call him Julio and he seems to appear in a lot of photos from the village.
