“Blue Love in Paris” represents the quintessence of what Paris represents to most of us: the city of love. I started this piece with a wash and drips of blue red and white acrylic paints the colors of the French flag. I added image transfers of various printed pictures representing lovers throughout the modern ages (60’s 70’s etc). I also added some collages of some items I felt represented Paris or France. Then while looking at the piece I recognized shapes of lovers or people meeting and started to draw them. Each with their own story to unveil. Then I added various sentences from songs such as Edith Piaf poetry sayings or writings from Aragon and others. I added the printed words “Love in Paris” with pictures of Paris monuments under the letters. These words were separated throughout the piece as the love stories in this piece are ongoing and not final. I also added some twirly or circular pieces of white paper collages to give a sense of whirlwind as love can make one feel lost in an emotional happiness twirl. I then drew a schematic representation of the Eiffel Tower symbol of Paris and where lovers meet the most for their rendez-vous. Finally to enhance the madness where love can take us I drew liquid acrylic twirls and circles in blue white and red. This is an emotional piece for me because Paris is where I met the father of my two amazing daughters.
