Café in Paris

One of my favorite cafés in Paris is the "Café Marly" in the Louvre, from which you can enjoy the view onto the famous Pyramid built by Ieoh Ming Pei, an American Architect. I had always visited it in the daytime and only recently had the opportunity to be there late at night and discover what a wonderful atmosphere it has then, too. Just a few late guests, having their last glass of wine for the day, somewhat sleepy already - it felt a bit like being at someones's house at the end of a party. A very posh house, mind you....

This is gorgeous. You've really captured the mood of the late night feeling. What a talent, you are!

More Paris! More Paris. I was set on buying this one but I see it is sold. So sad. Anymore like it? I love the firey yellows, deep red and the striking white.

Thank you, Zack! They're fun to paint - makes me imagine, I were there myself.

Thanks to you, too, Jen. Sorry you missed this one, but I am planning to do a few more of Paris - so stay with it!
