PROMO the first Postcard of Parisian life

"Promo" 
.

This is a book store on boulevard Saint Michel that is open in the evening.  This painting was one of the first of the Parisian night scenes.

This is number one of the Postcard Painting of Parisian life.  Inspired by several artists that make daily paintings and blog about them and auction them. I decided to start painting postcards of Parisian life. The one artist in particular that really got me was Stephen Magsig that does Postcards of Detroit.

Painting on auction at Ader Nordman lot n. 280

The Maison des Artistes of Paris and the Haiti Action Artistes organized an auction of artworks to help the artists of Haiti after the terrible disaster earlier this year.  Artists were asked to participate by donating a work for auction.  The 700 artworks are on display at the Ministry of Culture in Paris and will be auctioned off Thursday, 23 september.  You can already bid online at this link ...

lot number 280 at Ader Nordman --- lot 280 is my painting.

The painting that I sent  is quoted at 300 to 400 euro that is about half what my paintings are currently selling for.  Seeing as how I can't keep any stock it is a steal.  Mostly of I hope it sells for a good price to help the artists of Haiti gain back space  and tranquility so they can dream again.

This painting is of the terrasse at the cafe La Rotonde on the corner of boulevard Montparnasse and boulevard Raspail.  It is one of the first paintings of Paris cafes that I painted.  It is oil on board.
