While we were still in Provence staying at Le Mas D’Hermès we spent one day returning to St. Rémy. While I was drawing with the sketching group the previous week, Ellen had a chance to see some of the town on her own and wanted me to have a chance to see it as well so we went to the weekly market. I also had a chance to take a second look at the monastery of St. Paul de Mausole where Van Gogh had been. The market in St. Rémy was filled with all kinds of local produce, cheeses, sausages, and crafts as well. Here is a sampling from that busy and crowded event.
When the sketchers were at the monastery of St. Paul de Mausole we concentrated on only a couple of locales and I didn’t get to see Van Gogh’s room or some of the other areas on the grounds. On this second visit, we had time to explore the area more fully.
