I have been away but where I have NOT been during this time
is at the pleasant Petits Déjeuners at Portland's Language Exchange. (1st image)
And not out hiking like the randonneur in the 2nd sketch.
Nor on vacation in Paris, as in the 3rd.
I have been in some high stress times in relation to home repairs.
I did manage to frame up some work for a show at The Language Exchange.
What most of the little works in the show have in common is that they have
French language text integrated into the sketches,
or English language descriptions related to my travels in France.
