It's hot here in Paris, I have been out at a quarter to seven this morning, walking in the still reasonably fresh air. Now I'm going to make some fresh orange juice, look at my beautiful Hydrangea on the balcony and Oscar, who will be watching the sparrows, and then I'll be working on the next "Fragment". At noon I'll leave for safetyjob, I'll be swallowed again by Paris Underground.... it's ok cause right now it seems to be less crowded down there, as people already left for summer vaccations.

Hope you are all fine this Monday, and I wish you a wonderful week. Love, Andrea

Jessie said...

It's getting hotter by the minute here too. We're promised a very hot heatwave this week. These Fragements are gorgeous!x

Cestandrea said...

Yvette, yes, now I was eager to post a picture of a painting, I'm tired (already) of posting photographs, I'm bored after a while... and just have to post a piece of the real thing:)

Jessie, here too, it's getting hotter by the minute and we too have been promised a very hot week, especially towards the end of the week. So, a big city like Paris is not the BEST place to be in during heat. Thanks for the compliment on the Fragments, I'm into oilpastels, up to my ears:)

I'm so cold and damp here I long so for heat. Guess we are never satisfied. Love your poppie fragments and your description of your early morning routines. Be well, suki

Hi Suki, so nice to hear from you, and oh yes, I know that you love het! I wish you were here and we could walk through Paris, perhaps in one of the citie's parks...
Hope the sun is coming back soon to you too!

These are fabulous! It's still hot here, but not as much as the past couple of weeks.

Cestandrea said...

Artist Unplugged thanks so much for your visit. The early morning routine isn't quite the same every morning, but still a bit of a routine...

Cestandrea said...

I love to read about the daily things you do. As if i am a little bit in Paris myself. I love Paris (in the morning) is popping up in my mind. :-)

I love the structure you create with the lines (i cannot explain exactly) as if the lines are thicker and lying upon the drawing or something. Great work!
