Art Notes

The City of Lights inspires many memories for me, both as an artist and as a romantic. Wandering the city of Paris I was greeted by the same boulevards that inspired master impressionists a century ago. I couldn’t resist donning my beret and attempting to embody their artistic vision of color and light.

In Morning on the Boulevard I create a mood of classic impressionism with a subject befitting the French masters of the past. This is a sunny summer morning that suggests a “boulevard of dreams” from long ago.
