This is a 60 minutes oil sketch done from one of my photos. I took it the last time I was in Paris several years ago. I like the wet quality it has. This is the tenth painting done for my quick studies class. I do like painting these quick studies. I don't have the patience for finish. I also love to see juicy paint and brush strokes.
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
