Paris is legendary as a city of romance, and to me this images captures that sense. We were strolling on the banks of the Seine at dusk, having just taken an evening boat ride and watched couples dancing to music under the lights outside a cafe. The weather was warm, the sky was dramatic, and while the shadows deepened and stretched before us, the moonlight gave the river a beautiful glow. Everything looked soft and romantic. This is Paris at her best.
This painting sold before I even had a chance to post it to the website. But I thought I'd share it here on the blog.

I am an artist and art instructor working in water media. Just knowing I can watch colors run together makes it worth getting out of bed every morning! Helping students capture the same excitement is equally rewarding.
