  1. All wonderful, but I love especially the architectural geometrics. Ready to frame and mount on the wall.
    I keep trying to figure out why these small French villages are so much more colorful, picturesque, appealing, attractive than our small New England town, and find so many reasons I get discouraged, and just stop thinking about it. I trust you realize every moment how lucky you are to be doing what you’re doing, where you are doing it!
