I was in Paris a couple of weeks ago
and made another visit to Giverney to see Monet's Garden.
The cherries were in bloom in front of Monet's iconic pink and green house.
I walked to the other side of the garden
and sat for a while on a bench near the pond.
My sister Mary was with me.
She sat alongside me and read while I did a little painted sketch.
Here is the sepia drawing I did with my new waterproof sepia sharpie.
Thanks Dawn, for the gift of the soon to be discontinued color!
Here is my finished sketch.
Well it's not mine anymore, I gave it to Mary as a keepsake of an absolutely perfect day.
It was all too short a visit as always.
I took lots of photos so I hope to do a few more paintings
in the coming months.
