Urban Innocence - SOLD

This painting came about through a friend who is also a very gifted photographer during her stay in Paris.  Her name is Claudia Ward.  Her blog Open Window has some of her photography and some wonderful recipes as well.  Those culinary classes she took in Paris have obviously paid off as I have duplicated some of them myself - yum.

She was kind enough to allow me to render this very tender scene AND help me with the title as I was at a loss for this one.  I attempted to express, concrete vs softness, harshness of the city vs childlike sharing love, etc.  The title was important to me and magically appeared with a list of ideas from Claudia.  She suggested I choose the words she offered in an email.  Urban  and Innocence were 'exactly' what I wanted to convey with this painting.

Mille mercis again Claudia, I truly couldn't have done this without you.  Au revoir!
