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 #25: View of L'Hôtel des Invalides, Paris
Summer is finally in full swing in Paris! Great weather for wandering around and exploring new parts of the city. This week I was walking behind the L'Hôtel des Invalides and this view caught my eye. It was a bit hot in the sun so I found a nice spot in the shade and painted my 25th Lost Art painting. I hope you enjoy it! And as always, if you find it, please let me know in the comments! This will be the last Lost Art in Paris for several weeks, as I'm headed back to the States for some quality time with my family. I'll do my best to get out and about and Lose some more Art while I'm over there! Not sure yet where all I'll be or how much I'll be moving, but I'll keep you posted as I go. Stay tuned!
This painting, oil on found metal (heating element cover), 54.5 cm x 27 cm, was left on the Esplanade Jacques Chaban Delmas, near the intersection of Rue d'Estrées and Avenue de Breteuil in the 7tharrondissement of Paris on June 21st, 2015 at 5:30pm.
