Limited Palette, the BD look

25x25 oil on linen 

 For years now everyone who sees my paintings in the beginning stages tells me to leave them like they are.  So be it. 

Recently Suzanne came to a party and said, "that is the Paris of my memories." 

Urban life was less colourful.  Neon signage wasn't in your face and we didn't have cell phones.  Quel horreur.  No internet. Sacré Bleue.  Things were dusty, or perhaps it's my memory.

So I've had BDs in mind. If you're French you know what a BD is.  It is a bande dessiné, a graphic novel.  The French are master illustrators. Here is a great website BDNET.COM  to find the latest tendences and those all time classics.  I love XIII

Eat your heart out.

My Paintings Make a Fashion Statement, oh la la!

Thanks to Sarah Hasch from In3Arts my paintings are in the window displays of this high end clothing store.  So cool!

Okay, if you follow me on FB you've already seen it. 

The shop is Tolub in Metz, right close to Luxembourg.  Run in and buy your Dolce & Gabbana, Ermenegilda Zegna, Gucci, Hugo Boss and the likes. Don't forget a Brooksby to hang along with those chic fringues.

photo from Charlotte

Last week Charlotte G. sent me this photo after visiting Saint Paul de Vence.  Three of my paintings hanging in galerie Rustinoff  or  galerie Joel Guyot .  
All three paintings are 120cm wide so that makes a big wall. 

This is what she wrote:

Tu es partout!!
Et c'était tes toiles qui étaient les plus belles bien sur;-))

Thanks Charlotte!
