On a recent return trip to Paris, I had the opportunity to discover the visual joys of this city anew. There is a tremendous sense of expectation in Paris as the glowing lights of boulevard cafes contrast brilliantly with the subtle palette of long winter nights. In my mind’s eye I like to turn back the clock to a simpler era and picture the wonderful costumes and festive life of the Impressionist era.
As a young artist exploring my style, I attempted to find inspiration from the French Impressionist viewpoint. I even created a brush name, “Robert Girrard”, that allowed me to create paintings with the carefree abandon of Monet, Renoir, and other grand masters of the Impressionist style.
