All five paintings are sooo nice! I can't pick a favourite. I am surprised (pleasantly) by the intense green on the left side at the edge of the building in Rue Saint Antoine?! That wall is in the shadow yet it glows with warmt. Well done Jennifer!

Valérie Pirlot said...

I came into comments not knowing what to say; your work is always so topnotch. But when I read another comment saying they couldn't pick a favorite, 'Le Marais Twilight' popped in mind. That one is so much about light, and the reflection on the window of the vehicle bottom right really sets it off. A master stroke!
