time is of the essence

hi gang! i am in and i’m out as heidi would say. i’m on reserve power and it’s midnight on the dot so it’s time to wrap it up toute de suite! just wanted to stop by and share one of the pieces i came across today. my sister in law found them in paris and gave me them to me to matte and frame for the upcoming event.

it’s one of a few original hand painted designs, this one for a wall. i love the details and the free hand of the artist, the way he make swirls and fleurs, i swoon! anyway hope you enjoy,  i’m down to less than 2 mins power so bon nuit!

    It is so pretty when you look at the details. We just brought ours in (plus the magazine covers) to be framed, can’t wait to see them, but no idea where I will hang them.

    Hi Paris Apartment….you have found a little treasure here….c’est fantastique. J’adore. Please tell us more of the ‘upcoming event’!!! And thank you for leaving a lovely comment on my blog too. It’s only 9 weeks until I move to Paris to live for a couple of years………can’t wait.

    Hi Claudia,

    Very pretty! I tend to love curves in design more than anything, so I love this.
    Maybe you could paint some of the design on one of your walls. I don’t know what kind of paint is good on interior walls for designs. I do want to take one of your ideas and paint the squares on my front door (inside) – just the narrow trim around the squares. Love that idea.

    I love everything about these: The subject, the movement, the colours, the writing and the washed out quality – just stunning. xo

    These are lovely, the relaxed line just draws me in. I would love panels like this in above my desk, just for those moments when I am gathering my thoughts.
