Hello, my name is Jeannette Johnston. IArtist Jeannette Johnston painting in Provence recently retired from working full-time with children with learning disabilities and was able to live my dream of moving to the south of France. I am drawn to the beautiful Provencal villages and the changing colours of vineyards, orchards and olive groves across the seasons. The clear light of Provence together with the colours of this scenery inspire me to pick up my palette knife and paint and I am celebrating the launch of my online gallery.

I hope to give a little insight into what life is like here whilst trying to survive as an artist with a grown-up family.

  1. Thanks for stopping by and liking my last post at The Preface. I love your photographs and paintings and find it so awesome that you’ve been able to live out your dream and move to Southern France. Provence must be beautiful. Ever since reading Marcel Pagnol and seeing the films, I’ve wanted to visit. Keep up the art!

    • Thank you so much for your encouragement and for nominating me for this award. As a relatively new blogger I have found it heartening that there is such a kind community of people on WordPress.

  2. This is the 3rd time I’ve had to “follow” you as your blog keeps disappearing from my reader, so very annoying! Just wanted to explain why I kept re-following you 🙂 Hopefully it won’t happen again!

  3. Hi Jeanette,
    I am (in the near future) going to try setting up a sidebar of blogs that I find myself at regularly. Would it be alright with you if I shared your link?
