Mimi Dancing in Paris

How did this painting get started...
A FABULOUS Grandmother sent moi photos of this beautiful girl with a LOVE of Paris...
she said paint her in Paris... a cafe maybe... and of course the Eiffel Tower...
show her fun side...
and the sketching began...
then with the cafe and Eiffel Tower BIG...

then with the tower less dominant...
then the Paris Cafe was change to Café Mimi with a BLUE awning... 
 
this was the little hint of paintings to come I showed you a few weeks ago...
after sketching was completed and approved... the painting was completed as you see in the beginning of this post... then it was shipped to the FAB Grandmother... framed and wrapped to be opened by one LUCKY girl...
