Night Lights on the Seine

 12x18 - $225.00

I keep going back to our pictures of Paris and there are so many I'd like to paint.  There just isn't enough time in the day for them all, plus, I want to get out and start painting plein aire now that I'm back in California with all these beautiful hills and wildflowers at this time of year.  With this painting, I wanted to get bolder with my pastels and so laid them on thickly with many short strokes.  I used Wallis white paper.  I never think I get bold enough and this might just be over the top.  I don't even know if I'm done yet with it.  We'll see.....
