1. The light there is so magical

I see why people paint there

5. Yes, I would love to go back someday and see it with new eyes. Not that

I didnít appreciate it in high school, but Iím sure Iíd see it differently now.

8. You are welcome...though you may prefer...

..a soundtrack Cary Grant is accompanied to in scenes from his Paris-as-a-backdrop movies. Traditional happy accordions sounds but this new thing is pretty sweet too

Don't speak French but love female french singers like Pauline Croze. The NY based group Ivy had a singer Dominique Durand from France whose songs in English melt my heart. https://variety.com/2020/music/news/adam-schlesinger-other-band-ivy-best-songs-1203552704/ Check out Ivy if you like to hear more!

My best!

9. It's impressive

You did a great job balancing this painting. I really like the details on the tower above the almost liquid flow of the grass below it. Itís all balanced beautifully with nothing feeling like itís overdone or that it needs more work. I love it!
