After a long flight we arrived in Paris. It was cooler than I expected and was afraid I had packed the wrong clothes. Since our room wasn't ready for check-in,we went to one of our favorite cafes La Terrasse,which is right around the corner from our hotel. I decided it was time to take out sketching supplies and just do it. Just the mere fact that I took the step without being hesitant, I started to draw views from where I was sitting and the hot chocolate I was drinking. My paintings are simple view of what I saw...and reminders of the day when I look back at my journals when I get home.
