Everybody loves Paris. It’s what I’ve learned at the Gala on Saturday. People either have fond memories of it, or it’s a place they someday hope to go. So yes, I am planning a whole series of Paris paintings with a special unveiling party for my collectors. There couldn’t have been a better moment for my mentor, John Ross Palmer, to announce an the unveiling of his Paris series, painted during his trip last month. This will take place at 1218 Heights Boulevard tomorrow evening, October 18, 6-8pm. I painted two Paris paintings of my own for the occasion, though I’m still planning to paint a series later on.
Also, on another happy note, one of my favorite artists, Saralene Tapley, is reading Stray Dogs and Lonely Beaches, and posted about it on Instagram. I find it serendipitous that there’s a Paris episode in that book.
