Today I remember...

Paris, where I spent wonderful weeks with my husband...10 years ago - has it been that long? It still seems fresh as yesterday. We bought a painting in a small gallery with the same name as ours.
That time in Paris had all what we wished for: romance, adventure, time to walk, talk, dine and leisurely enjoy life in the great City of Lights. We have seen many other places since then, but Paris holds a very special place in our hearts.
I wish for all of you to have lovely memories to keep...and the chance to create new ones!

The painting 'Boudoir' is by the contemporary Spanish painter T.Raysse, it is actually only 7 x 19 inches, without it's wonderfully hand finished frame. We were drawn to the artistry and the beautifully painted boudoir (presence) and still life (memento mori), the black area symbolizes the unknown future. We often try to find some piece of art to commemorate travels and bring some lasting memories home.

  1. What a lovely painting...and a black area for the future which reminds us to use our present to have wonderful memories in the future.

    Lucky've been to Paris already and with a loved one too. I still have to experience the romantic Paris lifestyle.
