I’m working on a new painting inspired by a place I used to walk by a lot in Paris. That, and the very cold, rainy damp weather we are having lately in Florida have put me in the Paris mood. Working in the studio, I’ve been drinking Mariage Frère tea, listening to my French music mix and the two radio stations I used to listen to when I lived in Paris, TSF Jazz and FIP. Both are on iTunes! The ads are annoying but a great way for me to brush up on my French.
So today I’m sharing another Paris sketch. This one was done in the gardens at the Musée Rodin. The Hotel Biron which opened in 1919 as the Musée Rodin is undergoing a major renovation now. I can see why they would need to update it for accessibility and security. There was something quite nostalgic about it though, lacking in the modern layer of design polishing apart from the entry. Once you stepped into the Hotel and walked from room to room, you felt like you were wondering through someones emptied out home with the most incredible art collection that was left behind.
Tomorrow I will be announcing the winner of a Limited Edition Giclée print of my painting Poppies, which I’m giving away to celebrate the one year anniversary of my blog. If you haven’t left a comment yet to be eligible you still have time by clicking here.
