M = Montmartre sights, paintings and tablscapes

The Montmartre Hill is very famous for the Sacré-coeur Basilica and its fantastic panoramic view over Paris.


old painting when I blogged  and painted Amelie...


But it is also a gastronomical and cultural area with an authentic charm strewn with staircases and charming lamps, Montmartre is a meeting place for lovers of every era.


Discover with this website, http://www.montmartre.com/, a practical guide for wandering on the Montmartre hill, to discover good addresses for restaurants, theaters and cabarets.


another painting inspired by Amelie... this painting is SOLD but it is available as a print...


Forget the well-trodden path and open the door to another Montmartre, the last village of Paris, with its beautiful streets full of history, charm and happiness!
 

stroll through the village...


look at the FAB views via Butte Montmartre...

 

and maybe hop on the Montmartre train for a tour...


listen to a song about Montmartre (found via A Lady's Life)...

This all makes me want to travel more and more and more!!! I love your talented "eye." Yes, you can paint wonderfully with your hands, but it's your eye and heart that truly are the visionary artists...your hands are merely the translators for the beauty you see and then share with others!
bravo!
Hugs, Lana
