Alex - Autumn in Paris
1.2010 (16 x 24 oil on canvas)

This piece was commissioned by
Alex' partner Shaun. The two of
them shared a week in Paris
during the Fall of 2009.

I love the movement of the fallen
leaves on the street as she
playfully turns for the camera.

The tree line in the distance was
hidden in a light fog; it seems so
far away. The rolling hills continue
off out of sight, and the fields lie
ready for next year.

This was a fun piece for me,
I took great care to try and bring
a little bit of Alex to this painting:
her feminine stature, that big
caring smile, and the way she
pulls her hair back.

I understand Shaun.
