Blue Door Place Vendome
Inspired by a recent trip to Paris.
Wandering across the Place Vendome, making our way to the Ritz for tea, the sky overhead is almost exactly the same color blue as the doors that punctuate the facade of the grand hotel. Anticipation is sometimes the sweetest part of an experience, and so I remember those moments as we laughed and walked, just before we stepped inside, settled into velvet banquettes and the champagne was poured. A memory to capture and never lose.
Paris always inspires, no many how many times I visit. Painting is a way to sift through and edit the overwhelming number of amazing things I see in in the city, where my eyes are constantly ping-ponging from the tiniest details to the most monumental of monuments. Sketching while the world is walking by as I sit at a sidewalk table and pretend to drink my coffee, with field boxes and supplies scattered across chairs at the Jardin du Luxembourg, or settled in my makeshift studio at the end of the day, my paints help sort through and make sense of everything I see, and to store it all away safely in my mind.
