Paris in love


I can’t think of a more Romantic city than Paris, France. If I could spend Valentine’s Day in Paris here are a few ideas!

Stop by many of the street vendors in Paris throughout the week or weekend and you will find flowers of all types you can buy them individually or by the dozen.

A an early morning walk by the Louvre is one of my favorite places. Pack a picnic and a blanket and park yourself on the grass. Its a great people watching place.

The Romantic streets of Montmartre. A great place for an afternoon stroll

“Love Park” found in Montmartre this huge mural says I love you in over 300 different languages.

Paris in the rain. A magical romance!

Stop in a cafe for dinner and people watching. This one has fantastic seafood

Finish the romantic day with a climb up to the top of the eiffel tower. The sunset from the top is breathtaking! You can even share a toast to the one you love with a glass of bubbly at the top.

Paris Cafe in Montmartre


Cafes fill the streets in Montmarte. On a cold winter day it is the perfect place to sit under a heat lamp outdoors and watch the people passing by. I love how this one has the specials written on the chalkboard written outside. Its Classic Paris!

Parisian Brasserie in Black and White


Before visiting Paris I had no idea how much I enjoyed French food. Here is a photograph of a typical Brasserie in Paris. What I love about this photo is the architecture of Paris in the background, the bikes lined up on the side, the bistro chairs set up right in front and of course the actual brasserie. 12×12 photograph mounted onto canvas. The sides are painted black to create a framed look. No framing necessary! Hangs on the wall with just one nail. Photograph is mounted using acrylic onto 1 1/2″ thick canvas in my Chicago studio
