And who is Caroline Vidican?

I love to create art. Anything. Simple, complicated, huge, tiny. I don’t have a favourite medium for expressing myself any longer.  Yarn, clay, stone, paint, multimedia. I’m retired, so finally I have all the time in the world to experiment. I knit a lot, I paint a lot, thick oil paint with a palette knife. I sculpt clay and cut stone. Some of it is beautiful, some less so. But the pleasure is always there. And of course I cook…

I love the sea. When I retired I moved from the Loire Valley to the Finistère, right at the very westernmost tip of France. A beautiful, wild, rocky place of surf and sandy beaches, wild moorland, gentle hills that the people here call mountains. A region of Celtic legend, misty past and radiant present. Of bagpipe music and men and women in traditional costume dancing traditional dances. Magic is literally everywhere, you feel it, it speaks to you. You cannot but be in love with the place.

    Ha, interesting that we share the same country, and I have so much admiration for your artistic endeavours. Wish I could be as able with my hands… 🙂

    Oh Caroline, I am soooo glad I have found you again! I’ve missed you.

    • Kate that’s very sweet of you and I’m touched! I “opted” out in the middle of last year, from all my blogs, they were eating too much of my life. But I think I may come back…! How are you doing?
