Et Voila! This piece is finished is now finished!
This piece was inspired by a photo I took on our trip to Paris a few years ago. I think it was in the area near the Catacombes, we were walking along in the hot summer sun and I spotted this flower shop being set up for the day. Can’t you just smell the blooms?
You’ll notice in the painting I took a few artistic liberties, but it made it work a bit better in art form. Plus the english name on the awning just wasn’t feeling so frenchie to me, so I left it out. It’s all good!
Here’s a shot of the entire piece:
Le Fleuriste, Paris. 22″x28″, acrylic on canvas.
And some detail shots…
I will have some prints of this piece available shortly, and it will also be going into a calendar I am working on for 2016.
I’m really loving the “every day” kind of scenes, just people and places as they are (or close to as they are!). Now how do I get myself back to Paris again to get some more inspiration?!
