9781478106708: Thyme in my Pocket: Moments in the south of France in word and watercolor

Thyme in my Pocket is a visual memoir of four splendid seasons spent in the rural French countryside. In word and watercolor, artist and writer Alison Johnston takes the reader on an intimate journey home to a country of heart, to a sense of place. In the tiny stone villages of southern France, she lived her dream, born during a six week summer art study in nineteen seventy-nine where she contracted “La maladie des pierres”. Translated as falling helplessly in love with stone, within which one lives and breathes and creates in these timeless villages, she has happily never recovered. For a magical year she and her cycling husband and musical son lived, wrote, painted and played, nurtured by the art, language, music, and most significantly, the cross-cultural friendships which blossomed.

About the Author:

Painting is a rudder keeping me in on course through out my life weaving through time, through both beautiful and perilous waters, deceptively calm surfaces obscuring roiling undercurrents. I seek to reveal what is authentic in life. An incurable romantic, I see the same belle vie exists in my brush as in my poetry as in my irish fiddle, in hiking up a mountain with an orchestra of crickets, as in the fetid mud digging for clams, as in the crusting ice in my hair after a descent in powder snow or the brilliant flash of a trout rising. I have been an artist for thirty years having studied art in the village of Lacoste, France and receiving a BFA from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, Washington. I live on an island off the coast of Washington when not in France in a medieval stone village. I love our four amazingly creative grown children and one man, a sailor, my husband.
