My Very First Art Purchase

Strolling along the cobblestone streets of Montmontre, I purchased my very first painting. I was 12 and with a group from school. While the kids around me were fighting over which “Je t’aime Paris” t-shirt to bring home to mom, I spotted an artist perched on the cascading steps across the street. He was working on a scene of “L’Arc du Triumph” which was destined for my family room back home. That day in Paris, 27 years ago, my passionate pursuit for original art and the stories behind each creation began.
