Another Parisian Cafe Painting -

La Terrasse Saint Jacques
- 80x80cm-
oil on canvas

This canvas is definitely among my favorites from the Parisian cafe series.  This cafe is also one of my favorites even if they serve bitter Cafe Richard.  Since moving to Paris and finding cafe life and discovering of Ivory Black pigment, I've painted several cafe scenes.  There is not much Ivory Black in this, more Titaninium white.  Extra fine.

I like this painting of mine because it blends a contemporary approach with an intemporal subject and it doesn't look like New Impressionism.  I hate new impressionism.  What is it anyway?  Most I've seen is a bad rehash of Impressionist paintings.  If you know of a good New Impressionist painter please tell me.

When I was in art school at the Maryland Institute College of Art, same school Jeff Koons attended, I learned to paint white on white.  It didn't make sense to me. But Jeff Koon's art doesn't either. Now I know why white on white is worth it.  A photo on the web does not show you what I'm talking about.  You'll just have to come see it in person.

This will be available in my upcoming show in Saint Germain-des-Près.  

Eat your heart out.

Mon Gars

Mon Gars-
oil on canvas 80x80cm -

The French troncate words when speaking. Gars is garçon.  No idea why the s is necessary. The title is a play on words because if you called the waiter 'mon gars' he might throw coffee in your face, especially at a Parisian café.  It's too intimate, unlesss he is your beau. 

This painting is for sale through Carré d'Artistes internet exhibition that starts today. 

 Carré d'Artistes has more than 25 galeries worldwide and works with over 600 artists.  That's some heavy competition.

I'm proud to be among them and absolutely delighted that they have honored me with an exhibit on their website.

If you're an artist and considering working with them, don't hesitate applying. They are one of the best galleries I've ever associated with in my 28 year career of painting.  Everyone who works there is kind, they are open to listening.  Every gallery of theirs that I have walked into is hosted by a kind and receptive person, ready to talk to artists.  Every artist that I've spoken with who works with them is satisfied and has only good things to say.  Enough of my brown nosing.

Wondering which café in Paris I took the image from?  Terrasse Saint Medard.
