Francoise Gillot Homage


 Francois Gillot died this week at 101. I wanted to remember her with this Parisbreakfast repost from 2012
What a tremendous woman and artist.
I visited the exhibit Picasso and Francoise Gilot:Paris - Vallauris, 1943-1953 at Gagosian Gallery 980 Madison Avenue

 A big collection of gorgeous old photos, paintings, drawings, prints by both Picasso and Gilot.

Marché Victor Hugo, Toulouse

 I wanted to try Toulousaine local specialties, so foie gras is a must 👍

And magret de canard (duck breast). I could have done without the brown gravy…the potatoes are usually sautéed in duck fat

Every year Urban Sketchers France picks a city to meetup in - Voila Toulouse!

May Fraise Balloon 🎈 Letter


I started thinking about dancing ballerina 🩰 strawberries at the Opera Garnier…which quickly turned into flying Balloon 🎈strawberries 🍓 over the Eiffel Tower bien sur. Where would I be without the Eiffel tower🤔

How many obsessions can a girl have? Shiny teapots, blue cups, pastry…one loses count. But flying balloons 🎈 has been a returning theme from way back

The French Art of Waiting


Bonnie said last week, “I won't wait in that long line. “

“Yes, Berthillon ice cream 🍦 is good. 

Is it so much better than Grom or Pozzetto? No. 

Amorino? Yes.”commented Bonnie.
