Sunday Morning in July

July 5, 2009

We’re having a heat wave here in France.  Early mornings here in Amboise are delightful – the sun is already shining at 7, promising another burning hot day, but there is still a coolness left over from the night.  Almost no traffic, sounds of neighbors opening their shutters, walking the dog or going to market, “bonjour,, vous allez bien?” “il va faire chaud aujourd’hui”

The first thing I saw when my husband brought me a cup of coffee in bed (hmm, I’ve just admitted to the world how spoiled I am) was this beautiful reflection on an open window in my bedroom, so I grabbed my watercolors and sketchbook and tried to capture it, and something of the mood of the morning.

I hope you’re having a peaceful Sunday morning too, wherever you are.

    I’m so glad that I opened my laptop this Sunday morning. This may be my most favorite sketch of yours – I love it. I’ve slept late but will have to make my own cup of coffee. Right now. Keep cool!

    What a delightful sketch. I can almost feel the breezes in the room. Happy Sunday.
