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 #37: Place de l'Europe, Paris
Lost Art is back in Paris!
Hey everybody! It's not easy to find good outdoor painting days in the winter, but this past week in Paris has had a couple of great ones. And I also found this beautiful old leather briefcase sighing its last breaths on a lonely sidewalk, so I decided to take it on a walk with me and see if I could give it a new life to live. It's great to be out painting again, and trying to rescue curious objects from their demise, and leaving unexpected gifts around town. I hope that this one brightens somebody's day today! If you know somebody in the area, feel free to share this post with them. Otherwise, if you're just out for a stroll around Paris yourself, swing by the Place de l'Europe and see if it's still there. Whoever finds it first gets to keep it! Consider it my Valentine to you ;).
This painting, acrylic on found briefcase, 45cm x 35cm, was left at Place de l'Europe in Paris, on February 17th, 2017 at 4:30pm.
