This is an 8″ x 11 ” water colour on a sketch pad done September 7 1988. 169 Faubourg St. Antoine was our address in the 11th Arrondissement near the Bastille. It is the living room in our apartment in Paris.
Our older daughter had taken a year to go to the Sorbonne and she worked as an au pair for a French family. My husband manage to get a sabbatical to do research at the Nuclear Research Centre in Saclay. He ‘s very protective of his daughters.
I don’t have much experience with water colours. I dashed this off rather fast and tucked it away only to discover it years later. If only it were a Caravaggio, Gert?
