It is now complete and I thought I'd share the story and pics of the details with you.
This was taken from a photo that my husband took during our first trip to Paris in Dec. 2011. We were enjoying our last day in Paris and decided to spend it in Montmartre. We went to Sacré-Coeur, which was just breathtaking!!!
When leaving there we roamed around much of the Christmas Market that was set up all around the area. In Dec. you are likely to find these markets all over Paris.
|Chez Eugene was the name of the |
café and this came off the receipt.
While we were sitting there at dusk enjoying the moment and watching the artists....the square suddenly filled with tiny little blue lights everywhere!!!!
|You will see "vin rough" in here....|
I mean....picture it....your last evening in Paris...red wine at an outdoor café....a square full of artists....then.....hundreds and hundreds of sparkling blue lights!!!!
We took numerous pics to try to capture that moment to take home. Mark did end up getting the perfect pic....so I've finally made use of that and created a Torn Paper Painting of that moment. As luck...or fate...would have it....I had even saved the receipt from that spot...so I used it within the piece.
|The date from the receipt is here...|
Dec. 9, 2011
While we were sitting there a tiny bird stayed by my seat waiting for bits of cracker crumbs. Well...of course I made sure he got his share....and I had to include him in this piece on the side of the canvas. After all....he was a part of this lovely memory as well.
This is a very special piece and a beautiful memory for both of us!!
