Lost Art is an interactive street art project. I find objects in the street, paint street scenes onto them, and then leave them out to be found on the streets where they were painted. It's an exercise in recycling, in letting go, and in reaching out. I'm curious to know whether the paintings will be found, or if they will remain discarded the way their canvases were before I painted them. So if you find one of the pieces, please let me know in the comments!

Lost Art #9: Avenue de France, Paris
Lost Art makes its triumphant return to Paris, France this week!
I'm very happy to report that Lost Art #8 was found and given a home last week in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania on my trip to the United States. You can read all about that one here.
Today's painting, #9, is on a bench overlooking the train tracks on Avenue de France, near the intersection of rue George Balanchine, in the neighborhood between Bibliothèque and the Pont de Bercy. As always, there's a map below to help you out if you're searching for it! I'm excited to be back in Paris and hoping that some of the paintings I do here over the summer will be discovered. Be sure to sign up for the blog if you want receive all the updates!
This painting, oil on found plywood, 32 1/2cm x 14cm, was left on Avenue de France on July 7, 2014 at 12:00pm.
