Place des Vosges


A trip to Paris is not complete without a walk through the oldest planned square in Paris. Place des Vosges is located in the Marais section of Paris and once housed the famous writer Victor Hugo. Today you can find kids and adults enjoying the park that is set on the grounds inside the square. There are also great restaurants and shops lining the outside which makes for great people watching.

Canvas Groupings a set of 12


I have been selling my 12×12 canvas pieces at farmers markets and art shows for the past couple of years. In person its easy to move around to create different sets of 3,4,6,9, or 12. This is an example of what you can do with these canvas pieces to create a wall and a fun story. Every piece can be customized. Choose from any image from my shop.
