REPRODUCTIONS

I have been known to paint a few reproductions

Here is one. Reproduction of one of Chardin's work. I am very fond of this artist.

Chardin was born in Paris, the son of a cabinetmaker, and rarely left the city. He lived on the Left Bank near Saint-Sulpice until 1757, when Louis XV granted him a studio and living quarters in the Louvre.[
Chardin entered into a marriage contract with Marguerite Saintard in 1723, whom he did not marry until 1731. He served apprenticeships with the history painters Pierre-Jacques Cazes and Noël-Nicolas Coypel, and in 1724 became a master in the Académie de Saint-Luc.

Unplanned painting!

I always claimed I would never paint cars or trains or planes leaving it to the boys!

I know, some of you will find the comment sexist and why not?
I only paint what inspires me. A car would not.

However, I felt challenged to paint this beautiful little car for a very special couple.

So here it is done.
To all car enthusiasts, take note: it will be the one and only car painting.
​I will not paint another, even if I have enjoyed the challenge.
