A Contest

Yesterday while you were munching your way through Patisserie des Reves goodies, I was at The White House painting Bo's portrait. Only kidding. But I was in Washington DC.
Visiting the DC Alliance Francaise. I will be exhibiting the Paris Facade watercolors there in September 2010.
After measuring and picture-taking I was hungry, so I dropped into Bistro Du Coin nearby.
A little closeup on my soup d'onion lurking somewhere under this blanket of melted gruyere.
Then I ran to The Phillips Collection.
For a quick race around.
Before running off to catch the bus back to New York.
More news and the contest!I will have an exhibit of the Paris Facades at The James Beard Foundation in May-June of 2010.
It will be in their Greenhouse Gallery
Now for background and hints:
The Greenhouse Gallery exhibits the works of up-and-coming and established artists who work with culinary themes. Providing artists with a space to show their work not only enhances the overall ambience of the room during events, it’s also in keeping with the Foundation’s mission to celebrate, preserve, and nurture America’s culinary heritage and diversity. Past exhibits have featured mouthwatering food photography, romantic watercolors of mealtime still lifes, and exuberant mixed-media collages.

is this watercolor if you can come up with a catchy, witty title for the show that incorporates food and Paris. The people at the Beard House are foodies in the food biz and they probably love Paris (who doesn't?)
How can I catch their attention?
I'm tossing the ball in your park.
Here are some of the crumby titles I came up with:
Paris Pets
Wine and cheese in Paris
Paris Pastry
Paris Food Scenes
Paris Fancy
Springtime in Paris
Affair with Paris
L'Amour de Paris
Paris Love Affair
Paris Feasts
Paris Fete
You can use French
Keep it to 3 words tops-2 words is better
Put yr entry in the comments here pls.
Deadline: Midnight tonight.

"Nourri par Paris"

marie said...

I love your blog it's very inspirational,
here's my title for your contest... "Pièce de Résistance"

okay here is the definition from wikipedia that describes the title and I think Your work:
referring to the best part or feature of something (as in a meal), a showpiece, or highlight. It can be thought of as the portion of a creation which defies (i.e. "resists") orthodox or common conventions and practices, thereby making the whole of the creation unique and special.

How about Coup de foudre or love at first sight? It's certainly how I feel about Paris pastries.

I am too tired to come up with anything witty, but I do love your photos. I visited the Phillips Collection last time i was in DC, too. That onion soup is making me hungry! Have a great weekend.

jeanette, mistress of longears said...

Egad! I missed the deadline! But look how many entries you got!

Berenice Lima said...

Carol, ça vas? C´est moi,à nouveau.
Desolée, mais je n´ai pas lu le poste à temps d´envoyer ma suggestion de nom, mais je suis sûr que votre peintures vont attirer plus d'attention n'importe quel titre on vas choisi; En tout cas, voici quelques pour fichier - Paris: papier et plat, Paris de couleurs et de saveurs, Paris: coloré et savoureux, Paris:regarder et manger.
Et vous, quand vous pensez en venir à Rio? Vous êtes française òu americaine? Jusqu´a maintenant je ne le sais pas. Moi, je suis bresiliènne, j´habitte à Rio, mais je suis en train d´étudier le français et j´aime beaucoup la langue. Je pense que vous alliez aimer faire la peinture des façades de certaines maisons et des bâtiments de notre ville. À bientôt.

Berenice Lima said...

Ops.... J´ai oublié ...J´ai faim à cause de la soupe à l´onion. C´est belle...c´est parfait, on n´a pas à Rio de cette façon. Je soupire de nostalgie de la Mouff.

Anne Corrons said...

I'm sure DC will love your paintings!

PeterParis said...

Shall we have a lunch on the terrace Renoir painted, next time in Paris?

Di Overton said...

You are getting the recognition you so rightly deserve. Will my Carol Gillot originals be worth a fortune one day soon? ;)
