Paris Cemetery

This is Cimetière Passy. 
I love cemeteries for exploring, painting and contemplating. I love sacred spaces of all kinds, I'm interested in the human need to seek the divine. 
There are larger cemeteries in Paris with famous folk buried there but I find the hunt for celebrity monuments distracts me from the experience of being in these amazing places. (Besides, this one is 5 minutes from where we are staying.)

Travel in Europe!!

London for a few days and then to Paris. I had an opportunity to paint a late afternoon image in a small travel sketchbook of the walls of London Tower. We are now trading apts with a couple very near the Eiffel Tower and so I had a morning to paint this. It's hard to avoid the cliche of the symbol of Paris, so I referenced it without focusing on it.
