i initially wanted to paint this piece for its shapes and to play with color. then i got the overwhelming...no, actually, a compulsion to paint it in these vincent van gogh's cafe terrace at night (1888) colors. do you remember that famous painting? beautiful.
i really don't know when if EVER paris would be this quiet during the day- no foot traffic, cars, horns blaring or people....when i look at this painting i hear silence.
for the diary: spent the day with one of my paris co-teachers, renee richetts. we decide what tools and supplies to bring to paris for the workshop. then we created a silly short movie about it using my photobooth movie application. i was going to upload it to youtube but so far i can't remember how to do that.
we were giddy because we are so excited about our trip.
