a little gouache panel painted at the kitchen table from our trip to Paris this spring
From a couple of weeks ago made while waiting in the little flower shop on the Rue des Saints-Peres. -For birthday flowers- E and I were celebrating our birthdays.
Well E, you won’t be surprised, waiting for my flight I heard more piano music, a brother and sister took turns dazzling the crowd at gate 41. this has been the Paris trip of birdsong and music.

more sketches from yesterday, these of the kitchen table and one from the bird flower market on the i’lle Saint Louis.
While wandering the I’lleSaint LouisElizabth noticed musicians outside the Eglise Saint Louis en islle. We went in and listened to a magnificent concert-orchestra, chorus and poetry. We found sanctuary, relief from the hot afternoon and then were filled up by this extraordinary music and drew, it felt miraculous being held by all that beauty.
