Sculpture and Drawing

People really do sit and draw in cafes in Paris.
A woman was kind to us in one of the cafes, returning D's hat after we'd changed tables.

I drew her luncheon companion, an exquisitely profiled and groomed woman wearing a simple white T shirt. French style isn't only expensive clothes, it's as much about attitude and presentation.
Money helps but isn't everything.
The artist at work.
When we left, I gave her the drawing of her friend. They both laughed and said "Merci!"
It felt good to to be in Paris and draw.  It felt even better to give it away as a gift.

I wish there was a "like" button. I am reading a lot of things I "like", but have nothing to say! Maybe I'll just do a smile. :)

Annie, Thank you for reading.
Would you like to be a guest host, talk about drawing, what it means to you? I would take dictation.
