"Cafe de Flore"

pastel 26" x 10" 2003

Wandering along the Boulevard Saint Germain, in my futile search for the Sennelier Pastel shop, I spied this famous caf. People watching is such fun, but I did it on the run. I allowed myself to sit and enjoy this pastime only while the sun was hiding. So may possible paintings, so little time. Once again I picked this interesting format to get a slice ofParis, including a bicycle, no parking sign, bustling waiter, and the ever present dog (a Tibetan Terrier?).
