Fall Morning, Luxembourg Gardens

by Susan Abbott

My busy and enjoyable week teaching an art history and sketchbook workshop in Paris ended last night with a celebratory dinner with my hardworking class (hours walking the Louvre and 6th arrondisement are exhilarating and also a rigorous mental and physical workout!)We enjoyed the last in a series of delicious dinners around town at the bustling art deco brasserie La Coupole. This morning I'm off alone for a quiet day revisiting favorite neighborhoods with my sketchbook and watercolors. I fly home to Vermont tomorrow, and look forward to posting my daily journal paintings again--beginning with a few looking back to an inspiring week in this beautiful city.
