My Travel Sketches from Paris - Carnet de Voyage à Paris

We've back from Paris a few weeks ago and now I find scraps of paper in my bag, in my jeans pockets, in my porte-monnaie. It would be nice Paris travel sketchbook if I accumulate it all. I would LOVE to share it here with you, so I'd upload some now, and some later.

These fast sketches I made very quickly in the Jardin du Luxembourg while waiting for my dadd and hubby. This is an Delacroix admirer of the bronze Eugene Delacroix monument:

and then I moved toward my point préféré of the Jardin du Luxembourg. So this is the sketch of lovers (Acis and Galatea) of La fontaine Médicis. It was built in about 1630 by Marie de Medici, the wife of Henry IV and regent of Louis XIII.

There is a caffée that I love on the street St.Martin, close to Hôtel de Ville - Le cafe Livres. I was really happy to find this sketchbook with this fast sketch:

and I found there le livre, the book with my name.

You see, there is a Voltaire's phrase Aimez qui vous aime - Love the one who loves you. Et oui, seulement comme ça ! I bought this card in the Pantheon, where you cqn stay for 1000000 years watching the magic sculptures of the French Revolution

I remember with so much LOVE our couple of days in Paris, how we walked there

and so I made some little video mixes of some shots that I made by iphone
