Paris Valentines Reds

Yellow Bird Admires A Chocolate, watercolor, 9" x 11 1/2"
February is the "RED" month, the month of Valentines Day - to keep us distracted from the cold wintry gloom?
Paris reds always strike me as strong and forceful - there are plenty of true reds where ever you look.
Paris isn't afraid of red!
This strawberry tarte aux fraises is loaded with true Paris reds.
Plus just a touch of pale green to give it that zing!

Comptoir de la Famille, is a wonderful chain of old fashioned styled kitchen and home shops. You can always find plenty of reds to cheer you up here. Their logo is true red!

I loved this whimsical red mural painted for no special reason on a low Paris wall...
Why don't you put something RED on today?
Et merci Marie-Noelle for all la vie en rouge!


  1. I love it when I see graffiti art done in a pleasing way.

    Hmmm, maybe red lipstick tomorrow? I don't think I wear enough red...and what better time to do it?

    PS You can expect my New Years Eve in Paris post on thursday ;D

    I LOVE and want some of those Red and white cups and saucers..In fact the whole set of dishes would be nice. ;-) They are perfect! As is your painting. And I am wearing my nice warm RED robe while reading this. Will that do? ;-)

    You can paint Paris Red, or in any color as long as it has your paintbrush and style labled to it!
