Eiffel Tower

Pin It
"Eiffel Tower"
6" x 6", Oil on canvas panel.
Sold.


After flying 12 hours to Paris, we checked in to our hotel and went directly to the Eiffel tower to take a four hour bike tour of the city. It was wonderful, and served as a great way to deal with jet lag and no sleep! Our guide explained to us that there was a competition to determine the design for what eventually became the Eiffel Tower. Would you believe second place was a guillotine? Now that would have been a weird Paris landmark!

I am finally back at my easel after spending the last week getting organized. Sorry to be gone so long!

Your sense of composition is so wonderful... I love how you simplify scenes and capture the essence of the meaning and beauty of the scene you are painting.

Bravo!!!

Love the color, love the design, love everything about this painting. Did I mention I also live in Paris?

Kentucky. Somehow it doesn't look the same as your painting...
