When they tell you Paris is a city of
lights - dont believe it. It
is a city of unpredictable weather, and, as one charming and hospitable Parisien
has proudly admitted, Paris enjoys rain 264 days a year
Simultaneous collaboration on the canvas gives us the opportunity to
complete paintings of substantial size right on location - in the
blinding sun, gusty wind, or intermittent rain.
During our annual trip to Paris in the fall of 2001, we
accomplished eleven 30x40 finished paintings while standing on the
banks and bridges of the Seine. Yet, fighting the elements for a painter
even a collaborating couple! - working in plein-air today is
not easier than it used to be for a cave man of the past!
