Marie Pascal

In the Summer of 2019 I visited my family in Southern France  –  I am so happy now that I could go just before the Pandemic!

    I took a lot of photographs, finding myself a tourist in my country of origin after so many years living in the US.

    I also visited many museums and was impressed by a particular exhibition in Paris featuring a collection of small drawings made by traveling XVIIth century artists from the Netherlands. 

    It gave me the idea of an “imaginary sketch pad” inspired by my trip, in a technique reminiscent of these drawings, with a limited range of colors and the desire to express a feeling of revisiting the places of the past.
