New small Paris paintings
"Chairs in the Tuileries Garden" oil on linen, 8"x6"
"Paris Blooms" oil on linen, 6"x8"- SOLD
I've begun to select pictures from my Paris trip to paint. Here are two paintings - little vignettes - just off my easel. I stayed at a hotel not far from Rue Cler and walked by this flower shop many times.
The light was beautiful around 8:00pm in the Tuileries Garden (Jardin des Tuileries, created by Catherine de Medicis, 1564). I had planned to sit and paint with the watercolors I brought, but by the time I finished taking a ton of photographs the park was closing. With so much light still left, it was too bad we all were gently ushered out. More Paris paintings to come.
