Two things tonight – firstly have you seen the SketchBook Project?  I’ve joined as have several of my internet friends and almost 3500 people around the world. 

I quote;

“Thousands of sketchbooks will be exhibited at galleries and museums as they make their way on tour across the country.

After the tour, all sketchbooks will enter into the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library, where they will be barcoded and available for the public to view.

Anyone – from anywhere in the world – can be a part of the project. To participate and have us send you a sketchbook that will go on tour, start by choosing a theme to the right.

All books will be included in an exhibition that tours the following cities: Brooklyn, NY Austin, TX San Francisco, CA Portland, ME Atlanta, GA Chicago, IL”


Now back to France and a small, but perfectly formed chateau, D’Azay-le-Rideau in the Loire.
