  1. Hi Jill
    Great blog, two questions. Where do I find your book? second one, can I use the first photo on your recent post about VinAzur ( who I plan to visit soon) as the basis for painting for my blog. It isn’t somewhere I know but it looks great.
    Thanks for blogging,I do enjoy reading it!


    1. Hi Brian — Thank you for your kind words! I’m so pleased to have you here, reading and commenting and sharing the beauty of your work!

      The photos with the bottles were all taken at my home. The ones with the vineyards (they have text) are from VinAzur. You are absolutely, positively welcome to use any of my photos as inspiration for your painting, and I’m sure VinAzur would be happy to share theirs for such an artful cause. But…then beware, I will share!! How exciting that you’ll visit VinAzur…take notes and pictures and maybe you can share your story as a guest post on L’occasion!

      Thanks you! C H E E R S.
