CHEZ MAX rue Pierre Larousse

"Chez Max" acrylic on canvas 1994
This was a little cous-cous restaurant next to my apt. on rue Pierre Larousse.  It was formerly called Les Palmiers until I made the painting. I loved Max even if he didn't buy the painting.

CAFE LE SELECT

"Cafe Le Select" acrylic on canvas 1996



 I remember sitting here in 1973.  The waiter was surly. He served a dog a bowl of water before serving me my café. I looked up at the late afternoon Paris sky. 
"This is where I want to live." I thought.

TABAC DE LA SORBONNE

"Tabac de la Sorbonne" 1996

I painted this for my lawyer, France Guinet. It was a gift for her husband. He used to hang out there when he was a student.  The place is still there. I went by the other day.  It was actually empty when I painted it. The people are invented.
