In March, my friend Liz spent a couple of weeks in Paris and Berlin. Mixed in with brief texts about art galleries, museums, the cemetery where Susan Sontag was buried and The Shakespeare & Company bookshop were comments about cafe hopping. I began to see images of the outdoor cafes I had frequented while in Germany and I knew Paris would have even more. An integral part of life, the cafes offer a sense of community - opportunities of conversation with both friends and strangers, a place to work or write while still among people. But cafes are also places to just be - places where no one gives a second thought to a person sitting alone with a drink, a book or a laptop.
Now you can create your own story about an afternoon at the outdoor cafe.
At the Outdoor Cafe was painted with acrylics and a palette knife.
