He's at the Marche Rungis starting at 3 AM (I could do this with the Jetlag I currently have...) where he searches and searches for the absolute best fish.

  1. Ces nouvelles peintures des facades parisiennes sont tres belles! J'irai a Paris du 20 au 28 fevrier. Grace a vous, cette fois-ci, je verrai la ville avec un nouveau perspectif!

  2. Carol, these are just great. Love 'em! I love the bicyclette and baguettes, too! Big smiles.

  3. I am just loving your new paintings. They are so fresh and fun. I want to hop on that bicycle & take off down the street and see what else there is to see. :}

  4. Carol...these are marvelous. Reminds me of Madeleine...grown up and on an adventure. Maybe that's you!

  5. Carol, I wish I could walk around Paris with you! I am headed back home to the states after living in Krakow for 18 months. Paris has become my favorite city.

    Oh Carol, I love "La Boulangerie du Reve"! So sad to see it was sold-good for you, bad for me:(.
    I look forward to more beauties!

    I absolutely adore your "facade" paintings. You are so talented. And they are so reminiscent of the real Paree. Thanks so much for sharing your vision.

    I just caught up. Can't wait to find our new house and use your art to inspire a room!

  11. I love the shop paintings. They are so adorable.

    The fish one makes me want to start singing "Le Poission, Le Poission..." from The Little Mermaid

  12. Carol,
    the shop paintings are gorgeous, I also love the people who frequent them.

    Dear author of Paris Breakfasts,
    I just have to tell you that about half a year ago I stumbled upon your blog and have lovedit ever since,but I had never seen or tasted MACARONS in real life.
    (I am from Holland but have always been more Britain oriented).
    but the last couple of days I visited Newyork
    and walking along 9th avenue allo f a sudden I had the miraculous experience of seeing your blog spring to life.
    I'm sure you know the place: La Bergamotte?
    all colors of macarons and even the glistening fruit tartes...
    and now I certainly know what macarons taste like!
    Thanks for the fun experience.
    Keep up the good work,Janke

  16. 75014 is where i stay when there.....


Love hearing from you
