Parisian Dreamin’

June 30, 2016

As mentioned in a previous post, I had the opportunity to go on a crowd-funded trip to Paris. As thank you gifts, I have made three drawings that my amazingly generous contributors can choose from. These were all inspired by sights I saw and photos I took in Paris. It was an incredibly inspiring trip and I’m so thankful to to the friends and family who made it possible.

This was inspired by a building on a corner near the Pantheon.

This is one of the oldest churches in Paris, Saint Germain des Prés. I loved exploring the less known, less crowded churches in Paris and seeing locals really worshipping there, unlike Notre Dame and Sacre Coeur which were very beautiful but crowded with tourists.

This bunch of buildings was across the Seine from Notre Dame. I love all the vertically sandwiched buildings and chimney stacks that filled Paris. It is a gorgeous city that seemingly never ends.

Here are the real places that inspired these drawings:
