Love this enthusiasm for a place I love

I love this painting for the total over the moon joy in it, which
is what I feel today.  Two of my friends have had fabulous news
(which I can't share yet), and I am so thrilled and excited for
them. This painting captures exactly how I've felt on the four 
occasions when I visited Paris.  I just love it. To the complete
maximum, maximum.

I'm super fond of the model too, who showed exactly the spirit
I wanted to convey in this painting.  I can remember the day
when I took the photos that I used for reference for this painting
 -- a bright, sunny day, and we met somewhere and laughed about how
much we wished we were in Paris, not Toronto. 

She sat as a model for several of my paintings, and always captured
the perfect mood.  Thank you Shaniece.
