I have walked along the boulevard that houses this area of Paris many times: the Notre Dame, grand and towering over you; the centuries-old vendors stalls that dot the river Seine -- I've bought my share of kitschy souvenirs and real vintage gems here. I am now beginning to recognize some of the vendors. I like to pretend they remember me too. Paris truly is this picturesque, especially when the sun bathes her just perfectly.
I also love this sweet piece of art that was never finished. It's a metaphor really. Life is an ever-growing process that doesn't end until we do. It's also a metaphor for me - I will simply never be finished with Paris. Each time I return perhaps I can paint in another number, but there are many, many more left to paint.
I hope you'll find your own sweet piece of Paris at our upcoming French Country Market:
Thursday, September 6: 5pm-8pm
