It's really hard to work during summer. School is out... kids are home... the weather is good... the food from the market is fantastic... Working just can't compete with all the distractions that form SUMMER. I have the attention span of a 3 year old - and that doesn't help either. The only time I tune the summer out is when I watercolor (creating my own summer on paper).
P.S.: I know I abuse the punctuation rules (dot dot dot), but I'm sure your inner literature critic could deal with it:)

In case you didn't believe me... here are some pictures I took of the flowers in Paris (except the one of me... taken by my friend Abby). I've been stuck inside for a couple of days now trying to avoid the heat wave... worrying a bit about my little garden wilting under the scorching sun.

I expected amazing architecture, wonderful museums, delicious food, interesting people... but I didn't expect so many flowers! Turns out Paris is full of well manicured gardens and flower adorned balconies. Great surprise:) Here's my 'Paris in Bloom' in pattern...

Just as you are suspecting... my week in Paris was full of wine, cheese, walking, museums, strange smells, beautiful people, unbelievably beautiful architecture, rude waiters, parks, weird tourists, crazy pigeons, sketching and a bit of shopping. If I didn't have family to come back to - I probably wouldn't come back. I'd just live with the pigeons (on the grounds of Pompidou Centre)... and listen to funny touristy conversations, steal their baguette sandwiches and make friends with elegant Parisian women. I already miss the daily wine and the amazing coffee everywhere.

Bright symmetry is the theme for this little blog entry. It's a sunny day and all is in balance... Well, I'm a bit out of balance, because the seed of excitement just turned into a ball of stress... as I am finishing up projects while packing for my trip to Paris... Although, if stress could be good - this would be the good kind:)
I'm vibrating with anticipation. Always wanted to see Paris! See you guys in 10 days or so:)
