Travel: The Artists of Montmartre (Paris, France)

I had gone up the steps toward the marble white Sacre-Coeur Basilica in Paris that summer afternoon, up on the hill, looking for Montmartre to see the artists that I had heard are always painting there in the square.


They surely were there and I enjoyed so much seeing them at work and their beautiful art pieces and the artists working on them. How exciting it was! I will go back there again sometime when we are in Paris. It is such an interesting and beautiful walk.

I got to go in '78 when I was a senior in high school. I had a picture of myself done in charcoal on a piece of grey construction paper. I never had it framed when I got back to US. When I was married the 1st time I had a hubby who liked to destroy anything he knew meant something to me. I kept it rolled up with a rubber band around it & he never found it.

In 2009 I got sick & ended up inn hospital/nursing home for almost 2 years. At one point they told my family I would not live. My apartment was cleaned out & almost everything was tossed or stolen. I would daily think of diff. things that I had lost.


We were at a friends house & there was a show on TV about Montemartre & I remembered my pic & immediately started crying. It was the ONLY thing that had made me cry. I called everyone in the family & no one could remember having seen it. A few months later my sis in law said she had found some photo albums she had brought into the house so they wouldn't get damp in the shed.

I asked if she had looked to see what was in the albums. She said "Well, there is a big drawing of you..." Yepper. It was my portrait. It is now hanging in my living room. Was a very beautiful day when we were there. The albums also included my photos from the London/Paris trip. Yay! If the picture loaded you will also see a pic at the bottom of the man who drew it.
