Mont Saint-Michel and Honfleur

Thanks to a very good friend I had the opportunity to visit these two amazing places. Mont Saint-Michel is out of a fairy tale. I can’t imagine there is another place on earth like it. Its abbey reaches so high to the sky as if it is literally reaching for God. I did a few quick drawings and this painting which really cannot capture what I saw. I feel like I’d need a week to figure out what to say and how to say it.

Honfleur is a small town in the Normandy region of France. This was my kind of European town. No matter where you turn there are picturesque buildings, a port, and limitless beauty in the details. I spent one chilly rainy morning making this series of black and white drawings. Again I wish I had a week to spend there.
