Artist friendships -- a bond that both inspires us and drives us

I've been asked by an artist friend, the amazing sculptor Grabrielle Fischer Horvath
to post a painting a day on Facebook for seven days, and invite a new
artist each day to participate too.  I am very grateful to Gabrielle,
because I've been meaning to blog again as promised, but
have been wildly busy with an exciting, complicated and demanding
teaching job.  This ends next week, and I will go into full art production then.
But for now, I will happily answer Gabrielle's challenge and post seven
of my paintings.

Today I'm posting First Stop Paris -- a painting I did in 2012 -- six years ago.
The model, Shaniece, was a super young woman, and posed for a few of my
favourite paintings.  Here she perfectly expressed the joy I feel each
time I land in Paris, and know I am in a city I love.

Have a loving your art friendships day.
