George’s Postcard Note: Early one morning we left the hotel for a coffee by this fun and popular pool at the Pompidou Center. The light was perfect, but the water-activated sculptures were still. Maybe that made it easier to draw. For a visitor, sitting still and observing allows for some amazing theatre: A homeless woman dressed as if she stepped out of the cast of ‘Les Miz’ to scour the water for coins. And later a group of students arrived and cut-up for their photographer by lining the edge of the pool with poses. I decided I had to include them.
