The last one in my planned series. Very in time, as I am losing the French spirit I felt in me after arrival back home.
Thank you, France, for your hospitality and freedom.

French people are easy and welcoming and good tempered. I can not guess where they find patience to survive among us, crowds of tourists.

France as Seen by IrinaR. Episode Six: Roofs.


During the journey I realized I would never be able to live in small town. I've got used to wide streets of Moscow, I feel at home at NewYork's avenues, and inhale deeply the vast of Norway.
But to be in French town with narrow streets and houses stuck together, to feel the ancient history and beauty of the place. How lucky I was to have that experience.

France as Seen by IrinaR. Episode Five: Food Shopping.

30cm x 23cm, Ink and Watercolor
Food like national idea. Food like joy and adventure. Food as source of beauty and aesthetic taste. Food as method of self-expression and self-esteem.
So there is no surprise that every smallest grocery shop is masterpiece in decoration and content.
