The image is a combination of sketches for my next oil/pastel series from my "all too short" time in Paris. As an artist, I soaked in as many memories of images my mind (and iPhone) could take. From the streets of Paris, to the Eiffel Tower, the Opera district, a day at the Louvre and of course Montmartre and the fabulous Moulin Rouge and the spectacular musical entertainment with glamorous costumes and dance performances.
I've long been a fan (as you can tell from my painting style) of the post-impressionist artists from the turn of the 20th century such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Cézanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin. So my next painting series will be of the memories, from the Can-can dancers, to my long walk to the Eiffel Tower, the city of Paris and of course, the Mouline Rouge!
