The story of how the Smurfs got their name is really interesting. The creator fo the comic, Peyo, was having lunch with a friend and could not remember the name for salt. He called it sctroumpfs. This remiinds me of so many great times I’ve had with other artists doing silly things, à flaner. Let’s hope those times return and our governments will allow us to be free again.

The French love Haribo. I was kind of shocked to see so much candy when I first moved here.

To quote directy from wikipédia: The Paris Brest was created in 1910 by Louis Durand, pâtissier of Maisons-Laffitte, at the request of Pierre Giffard, to commemorate the Paris–Brest–Paris bicycle race he had initiated in 1891.[1] Its circular shape is representative of a wheel. It became popular with riders on the Paris–Brest cycle race, and is now found in pâtisseries all over France.

I don’t even eat Haribo but I love their packages. This one is extra sized because I couldn’t find the small ones and I have to hide it behind my paintings. There was one of the Post Machiaoli painters who was so poor he had to ask his neighbour to borrow a fish. The fish was the dinner but the painter wanted to use it for a still-life. I can’t remember who it was. I’ve painted a lot of fish. It really makes the difference when you paint from life compared to painting from photos.
