I love the iron work photo's when I think of Paris or French homes there is always all that magnificent iron work and then there is the Eiffel Tower,

It is hard to capture in a painting and you have done it so well especially love the B&W of the gate opening to the Eiffel Tower

Oh Mon Dieu Fifi,
Merci beaucoup. I LOVE it and, I know that you love some colour but I L=O-V-E the black and white and, I'm so pleased that 'justimagine' likes it too. I thought that maybe everyone might say 'where's the colour' !!!!
Thank you so much for indulging me and for doing these gorgeous notecards for me. I am so delighted. Merci, merci, merci. Lots of love. XXXX

Ah yes, love the ironwork in Paris. Last semester I did a little research and report on Hector Guimard. His designs are quite amazing.

I absolutely love ironwork. Charleston, one of my favorite places to visit, has some amazing ironwork. It is not quite the same as being in Paris, though...

It is amazing how the French can make anything, even subway entrances, look like beautiful pieces of art!

Paris is so beautiful, and the ironwork is like art...makes me wish that carried over to Los Angeles.

Hi Fifi,

*sigh* Your work just sends me to another world where peace and beauty surround me. What a breath of fresh air your work is and I love that you paint from life!

I got a giggle out of your "I wanna be a cowgirl . . . and you can be my cowboy." See! Still laughing. Haha! That is exactly the song that was going through my head when I wrote that headline. Ah, the blasts from the past.

Thank you so much for your visit, what a pleasure. Sending you wishing dust for a blissfully perfect day.
