New Painting - a long time coming!

IT is DONE! 
I took this photo in 1977 when I went to France in high school.  It was the best thing that had happened to me at that point.  This view is on Montmartre where artists gather, paint and sell their work.  When looking for the subject for my next painting, I came across this photo and has an AhHa moment. 

This painting took me several months working on and off. I had such fun with all the little paintings since I loosened up and was more painterly.  I will be offering Giclee prints shortly on Etsy.  I have to keep the original for a solo show in September.  It is done in acrylic on 11x14 Ampersand board.

Back to the trip.  I wanted to reminisce a bit with the thoughts popping into my head.
Sleeping 3 in a bed with 2 of my best friends.
The wake-up calls at ungodly hours - Hola!
The mini bar in one of the hotels - new to me.
The three of us riding the metro alone at night to see a friend going to school in Paris.
Everything being closed on Easter so we visited some caves.
Trying to order a banana split and the vendor not understanding us!
Visiting a french school and meeting some of the students.
Eating ham and cheese sandwiches for lunch everyday.
Visiting Versailles!
Visiting the Louvre and seeing the Mona Lisa.
Raiding the boys with panty shields on our heads - don't ask!
Being asked for directions in Paris - Yeah Right!

Thanks for taking my trip down memory lane~!
