BTW this is not a painting of a cup of tea and a flower. This is an homage to a Paris monument, the monument of a Mariage Freres black tea tin...
Corey said... ParisBreakfasts, you could paint anything and I would love it! But since you ask... how about the Eiffel Tower?
Non, no, niete, nada, niente, JAMAIS!
This is not what I meant at all! Have you ever seen a monument painting here at PB? Unless you call a painting of macaron a Paris monument and I do.
HELLO? This Tour Eiffel du chocolat is as close as I come to the real one. And I've complained way too many times what a bitch it is to paint chocolate..
I usually have to paint something over and over until I get it :(
Ilva of Lucullian Delights said...paint Cheese please!
At first I agreed, but after thinking a bit, NO, sorry, not possible. Aside from the adorable sheep parked on this chunk of Reblochon.. Most cheese looks like corrugated cardboard that has been sitting in a cellar somewhere. The colors are not pretty nor is the surface texture and forget about the smell. Sorry Ilva
Now this I could go for. The chien in the chic red collar was guarding his café like Cerberus at the gates of Hell -- the first Parisien I saw after landing last May. I Ihave lots of doggie pictures :) 3rd try at the Mariage Freres monument..not there yet.
Some other suggestions that came in:
cityfarmer said...My heart beats a little faster at the photos of doorways and the architecture of doors in Paris. I wouldn't mind seeing a watercolor off your brush depicting beautiful entrances!!! Nope, I don't do windows and I don't do doorways. Désolé.
Shannon said... I'm wondering if you can paint people...a person you saw in Paris as best as you can from memory. Uh huh. No more figures if I can help it and I don't do "memory" either. I'm smitten with coffee cups.
And Lin said...Do you do landscapes? I will if I'm in Tuscany..meanwhile I'm hungup on painting café table top landscapes, preferably in Paris..
Another request - Let me know if you have any special, favorite Paris addresses you'd like me to visit NEXT WEEK(!), since next Tuesday I'll actually be there, not just dreaming about it...
