Mercredi 16 Janvier Looking for Hopper workers in Paris
A hot hot Hopper painting from the Grand Palais exhibit ending tomorrow.
I go out early looking for hot croissants (no go) but catch the veggie guy setting up his endive in a Hopperesque manner..
Did I tell you my LCD lense cracked enroute to the airport so I can't see what I'm shooting - just a bunch of lines. Maybe shooting 'blind' is the best way to go?
The galette de roi girl at Boulangerie Eric Kayser - rue Monge.
Hopper's lonely, solitary figures have Paris transfixed - so many new books out on Hopper and some with no pictures!
The text here talks(more or less) about the penumbra/shadows and how the girl seems wrapped in a mysterious envelope..is she soucieuse(?), fatigued or simply pensive? What do you read into this quiet moment with the theatre usher?
This was a page out of a book for young adults...the French are definitely different than us.
This girl seems wrapped in a penumbre of indecision...macaron marron glace or infiniment vanille? Oh la la
'Night Howks' is the mysterious painting driving the French crazy. Yet Hoppers wife Josephine named it thus because the man at the counter had a hawk-like nose. Go figure.
Love this very geometric sketch from Hopper...
Who would guess that Hermes' flower department would have the makings of a Hopper painting?
My favorite Hopperesque shot is this cleaner finishing up late at oh-so-chic Eres, Madeleine.
The hottest of all? A caneles made on the spot. What's not to love?
Sorry I've been M.I.A. I'm just fine. Maybe having too much fun in Paris running around comme d'habitude + getting some work projects done to pay for those caneles. Bear with me till I get the right balance PBers
Bisous bisous cg
