On the Street… Polka Hat, Paris

I met Bernd years ago when he was still teaching his amateur water-colour course on Rue St. Honoré. He always had the most amazing knack of adding one, or two, or even three zany accessories that really made him stand out of the crowd, perhaps explode is a better word.
I was an eager student and absorbed everything I could from Bernd. Over the years I stepped up the ladder of competitive water-colour painting. Bernd trained me to my peak - European Amateur Speed Water-colour Artist of 2005. It was then, sadly, that my blog began to pic up and I haven't thought about painting since. Not till I saw Bernd in a halo of smoke on my last trip to Paris. He did a good job at trying to get me into the break-neck world of speed painting, but alas I feel that I've gotten too old for that.
