i'm in europe for the month of july. my son and i started in paris where we visited montmartre. i had been there before and made this painting from an old photo i had taken. it was fun to see the building again after having painted it. it had inspired me in some way, but the painting is by no means a simple likeness of that building. it is a separate thing altogether. the shapes may be the only things that remain somewhat true. "all art is abstract art" - who was it that said that?
