Typical day in the Luxembourg Gardens

A typical session might be one we had the other day -- an American woman, in Paris for a while, hadn't painted in several years.  We met her at the Luxembourg Gardens -- after walking around a bit, she choose a place which she liked.  We each painted a 12 x 12 inch canvas there in about an hour.   Then, I suggested the Medici fountain --  we took a 14 x 18 linen canvas (general size) and we painted for 90 minutes.   We lunched together at the cafe Rostand across the way  -- if we are at the Seine, we usually make a tour of the Orangerie, but the show at the Luxembourg Gardens isn't so interesting at the moment.  Then we walked to the other side of the park and she and Blair painted the bee house, and I painted trees and people.
