Lockdown Diaries – Art – Sunday Market on the bridge

How have you been spending time during the lockdown?

Over the last few days, I’ve been rummaging through my wardrobe and drawers in an effort to clear up years of clutter. While I was clearing out my drawers, I found a diary with a write up of our trip to France, sometime in 2015 I think – when France had the hottest summer – something I can never forget thanks to the absence of adequate cooling at the hotel in Lyon. We had to ask for table fans. Fortunately Lyon was a stopover. The next day we went to Paris where the air-con at the hotel was much better. We spent four days in Paris and saw Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Champ De Elysses, Notre-Dame Cathedral, Palace of Versailles, Arc De Triomphe and Musee D’ Orsay. But I’ll write about that in another post.

This post is in memory of Paris. I did this painting of a Sunday market on the bridge in Annecy, France. It’s part of my lockdown series, ‘Places I wish to go.‘ Its based on a painting by Jenny Gore which I found on Pinterest.

    Beautiful painting, Madam..!!
    Annecy is lovely. I am sure you will love being there, if you are into canals and the Medieval Architecture along those waterways. And it’s a good choice too – if one thinks of reducing the burden of over-tourism from Paris.
    France is really a gigantic country and offers thousands of places to explore..!! Hope you will share the stories of Annecy as well.. 🙂 All the Best.. 🙂

      Thanks Abirbhav. I gather you’ve been to Annecy. It sounds exotic and definitely a place to visit. I love anything ‘old’ and beautiful like the sound of castles and canals. One day, when I go there, I will share the stories here:). Thank you for all the info on Annecy and your wishes.
