#12 Paris Flower Shop- Sheryl Hawkins

This watercolor is painted from photos I took during a trip to Paris a few years ago. My husband was on a business trip for the seed company he worked for in California. This building was where the company's Paris offices were. Vilmorin is a huge seed producing company and lucky for us, they owned his company in California and we got a Paris trip! I like painting buildings and love all the details (even though I tried to keep them loose) with the seed packets and rows of plants.

What a nice painting, and nice that the location has special meaning for you.

Gee.... I can see that I need to get reconnected to this blog. I love your Paris image here - it is such an inviting scene. I've done 2of Laure's trips to Paris series (and others) although I've never been to Paris myself. But... the classes certainly got me in the Paris mood! You image reminds me how much fun I had on those imaginary trips and that I better get more painting in my life. Thanks for poking me.
