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!
Well, we made it back from Egypt and had a few days in Paris before going home for the holidays, so I thought I'd go out and leave a new painting while passing through! This one is on a park bench in the Square René Le Gall in the 13th. It's a lovely place to sit and paint, if anybody is looking for one of those :). Next week I'll be back in the States for a little while, but I'll hopefully be painting more in Paris in the new year. I wish all my Parisian friends a warm and happy holiday season and I hope that someone enjoys this little gift I've left behind. As for my friends in the US, keep your eyes open! I might be leaving some paintings over there soon!
This painting, oil on found wood, 22 cm x 23 3/4 cm, was left in the Square René Le Gallon in Paris on Dec 11, 2014 at 2:15 pm.
