i finally made it down to the south of france to start my residency, and it’s as if i had never left. the weather here is just perfect. it’s like coming home again . . . i grew up in fresno, california which has mediterranean climate and so it feels subliminally familiar to me. i am ready to get my hands dirty and to see what inspires me. this is where i will be living for the next 5 weeks . . . top floor.
