The first week in Paris was heady – seeing all the sites we knew from Art History but never experienced. The Château and surrounding countryside were gorgeous. For a moment I imagined as if I had closed my eyes and found myself in heaven! The summer was an unforgettable continuum of introductions to French culture, studio projects, concerts, and field trips. The sketch of the Château de Chambord rooftops was made during a field trip to the Loire Valley.
