Gisant of the tomb of Philippe le Hardi, Dijon (picture: family archives)

My study, where I used to do research, has become such a mess lately with old and new paintings, books, swords, and other weapons and all sorts of stuff from my childhood home that I had to store temporarily somewhere, that I have not used it at all the past six months.

So this week, spring cleaning in mind, I just painted a couple hours each day, mostly studies and sketches, and spent the rest of the time tidying up. Unfortunately I keep running into interesting things such as footnotes and bookmarks in books that are worth investigating. As such, cleaning up it’s taking a lot longer than I originally intended. Plus I have come across an even greater archive online that I want to sort through, including a few gigabytes of Burgundy-related stuff. It’s all connected somehow and it’s driving me crazy.

The update of this site will have to wait for another few days.

And I’m still looking for that wretched boot.
