Our many past
trips to Paris convinced us that we love the city in the fall and in the
summer, but now we can say: yes, we love Paris in the springtime as well.
When a sudden gust of wind picks up the canvas and pierces it upon a fence, when heavy
hail pounds at the palette and whips up the paints into
an unimaginable, colorful "frappé", when a splash of cherry
blossom petals creates an unplanned collage on the wet painting, we
stubbornly clench our jaws and repeat the invocation: "I love Paris
in the springtime!" But we can truly feel this love when seeing the
familiar sights magically transformed by L'Air de Printemps - the Air of
Springtime... These are the eight paintings we completed in
Paris this April.
