  1. Hi Nora,

    Haven't been blogging lately and have missed all your work. Love this one with the people strolling outside and the cozy cafe inside.

  2. Bonjour,
    Humm! comment résister à un bon chocolat chaud lorsque dehors la pluie sévit ?... Et comment résister au plaisir d'admirer cette merveilleuse aquarelle remplie de lumière et de couleurs ?...
    Très joli travail.
    gros bisous

  6. Lovely as usually and a fun detail with the people outside trying to avoid the rain. I also like that you made the outside colder and less pleasant. Well done.

  7. I just love the windows with the passers-by trudging past in the rain while we are cosy and warm inside with a coffee and croissant. I feel I am there. Love it!

  8. I love this too, Nora. I'm mesmerized by the way you've handled the windows too. And? Craving a chocolate chip cookie.

  26. I can't believe what you can pack into a 5x7. The line work here is just amazing, filled with energy yet beautifully composed. I love those folks hurrying by outside, too!

  27. The scene outside the window is just perfect -in just a few thoughtful lines you've produced a hurried, rain soaked vibe. Coincidentally, it's raining here, so I'm totally eating cookies.

  28. Excellent sense of place. I feel I've been there, or am there.

    Sorry for my weird english language. I spoke it fluently many years ago but I don't anymore. (And I'm supposed to teach english to my young pupils : Oh my god !!!! ;-))
