Our late morning brunch in Paris


After that late night I was so afraid I wouldn't wake up in time for breakfast. Fortunately we had agreed to meet for a late brunch at the nearby cafe. Kelly was an early riser and got to the cafe before the rest of us, just in time to snag this outside table with a view of the river in the distance. Thanks Kelly! It is such a treat to sit outside on this beautiful morning along the river. I wonder what they are serving for brunch today... something sure smells good! Maybe we can even go for a little stroll along the river after brunch.

i am truly taken in by this sweet little painting....wondering who's living in all of those houses in the distance.....and wondering what you ended up having for brunch (i hope it was a flaky, buttery croissant with fresh jam!)!!

your story is charming, claire, and i always look forward to seeing what your next paris adventure is going to be!! and i love your can-can dancer, too!!!

Boy! I sure wish I had a bit of your imagination! Love this little "street view"! It is just gorgeous!

Even without the words this is a soothing image. I want to be there. Then the words just cement in the atmosphere. Nice work.

This is truly a beautiful sketch, Claire. I love the moody neutrals you used. Is your class still in progress?

Claire M said...

Sadly the class has ended.. I just have a few more images to post. But... I'm signed up for another trip to Paris with Laure starting in January. She is going to change some of the assignments so that it will be fine to take it again. I really enjoyed the class and learned quite a bit.

I think it's great that you and Kelly are taking the Paris class again! I will eagerly watch for your sketches. I will be taking Laure's beach class and the trip to England.
