At sunrise the snow on the Jura seems to light up. I have been drawing its shape this week, looking from west to east.

Au lever du soleil la neige sur le Jura s'allume. Cette semaine j'ai dessiné sa forme, en regardant de l'ouest à l'est.

Dolls' faces appear both human and object-like. We recognise their similarity to our own faces and attribute character and mood to the dolls, while still understanding that they are inanimate.

J'ai finalement changé de sujet, au diable les belles orchidées, j'ai suivi mon côté sombre!

En hiver le soleil bas projette les ombres de ma porte d'entrée en fer forgé loin au fond de la pièce; l'ombre se déplace le long des murs, monte les escaliers, passage du temps... j'ai essayé de les suivre à l'encre de chine.

In the end I changed the subject, to hell with beautiful orchids, I followed my dark side!

In winter, the low sun projects long shadows of my wrought iron front door, all the way to the end of the space. The shadow moves along the walls, climbs the stairs, passage of time ... I have tried to follow them with Indian ink.
