Studio 365: Day 320

Day 320 ii

The Luxembourg Gardens, Paris, 31st August, 1962

One more page of drawings from my summer in Paris in 1962. I somewhat foolishly imagined myself as a young Toulouse Lautrec as I sketched the cast of characters in the gardens and around the fountain that day: the young boys sailing their model boats, the loving couple out for an evening stroll, the guitarist filling the air with his music and the lady sleeping soundly on the bench. The drawings may be primitive when looked at today but they capture a peaceful precious moment in time in a city that continues to be very much in my heart and thoughts today.

  1. I had to turn the news off today. I’ve had it on (even during the night) for days, struggling to wrap my head and heart around such horrific tragedy. I’m amazed by the courage and heart of the French people to press on, fight the fear and live their lives.
