Cafe de Flore

By | Paris, Sketchbook | No Comments
I checked out this renowned cafe
because Jim Morrison (oui, I’m a big
fan) spent his last days here, writing
and, no doubt, drinking.  I expect
many more luminaries did the same.
I, for what little it is worth, did not
feel at all at home here– alas, I’m
not a cafe-lounging guy.

Villa Savoye

By | Paris, Sketchbook | No Comments
My son suggested an outting to 
Villa Savoye in Poissy, designed by
the modernist Le Corbusier and 
it is an intriguing structure, well worth
the visit, expecially after the sensory
overload, and let’s admit it, excesses 
of the Baroque…but this hilarious
out-structure (about 30 feet tall)
caught my sketching eye.
