18 - To Sebastian - June 2011

Dear Sebastian,  

Do you remember when you were in the workshop with Papa watching him paint all those big pictures?

One day a truck came to Papa and Jojo’s house to take the paintings to France.

You said to the driver of the truck “Don’t take them to France please, take them to my house.”

But he had to take them to the airport and he put them on an aeroplane which took them to France.

In France, Papa took them to a special kind of shop which sells paintings.  It is called an Art Gallery and there were some lovely pieces of sculpture there too which Papa and Jojo’s friend Dume had made.

One night we had a very big party at the Art Gallery, and we had pizza and cheese to eat, and special red drinks too.

Everyone wore pretty party clothes.

At the party, someone liked the picture Papa had painted of you when you were three.

They bought it from the Gallery, and took it home to their house.   Now it is on a wall in a house in France.

Every day, when the people in that house sit down to have tea, they see a painting of you when you were three.  Isn’t that wonderful?


Give yourself a big hug from us, and blow bubbles on Elliott’s tummy!

Love Papa and Jojo
