Ciel et Enfer

There were two clubs in Montmartre during the belle epoque. I wish they were still here. They were called respectively, “Heaven” and “Hell”. Or in french “Ciel” and “Enfer”.

Domergue Exhibit Paris with Marie

domergue

There’s a Domergue exhibit in Paris at the Musee de Montparnasse. I went to check it out with Marie ( of Le Boudoire de Marie). The paintings are usually found at his villa in Cannes, which I got to visit a few weeks later. I was so impressed by his confident brush strokes! The painting above is just sublime!

We took some photos in the alley in front of the gallery. It’s in one of those romantic Parisian passages. This one is filled with artist’s atliers.

When Ciou was in Town

She took some photos of my house and posted on her blog. Nice to see someone else’s vision of my world. Those are some apricot scones I made and a lovely small cake that Ciou bought for us to share.

This photo of us was taken behind an apartment gallery that we went to for an art opening. There was a fantastic french garden in the courtyard.

Pink Trees Everywhere

These photos were taken last week. The blossoms are already starting to fall. That is why I don’t like to leave Paris for a single moment in the month of april.
