In France, some buildings have stood for centuries, silently witnessing the world around them. Each imperfection, like a wrinkle, unveils their beauty.  Walk by these old buildings a million times and you will see something new each time.  Come closer and run your fingers over the stones. There is always a new crack, a new tear, a new scar. And beyond the marks, there are the life stories they hold.

Using ink with dip pen as my main medium, I use rough rendering to impart the nostalgia these French facades exude, adding only a very few touches of watercolor to breathe life into the stones.
