Fancy a French feast?  Pull up a chair and we're there.

Today's illustration features the very lovely Le Café de L'Epoque located in the first arrondissement in Paris.  With both the Vero-Dodat Galerie and le Ministère de la Culture close by, this charming cafe in the heart of Paris is a beautiful spot to relax, digest and imbibe.

A waiter enjoys a peaceful and somewhat momentary lull while a patron inside with her typically French marinière striped top soaks up a café crème (somewhat akin to a cappuccino ... if your style is more filtered coffee with a little milk, try requesting café au lait instead!)

Meanwhile, the kitty cat is assessing whether or not those shiny globes that are like massive Christmas tree baubles are something with which she can play.  I'd love to see that, how about you?  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!  This artwork is now available as a gorgeous fine art print - ships worldwide (click here, s'il vous plaît). 

Café de L'Epoque is located at 2 rue du Bouloi  PARIS 75001

Francophile Friday : Carousel Trocadero with an Eiffel Tower View

If you want to choose a theme for sightseeing in Paris, locating and visiting her carousels is an especially picturesque one!  

My newest carousel illustration artwork is inspired by the beautiful carousel located in the Jardin du Trocadero.  Crafted from timber, this whimsical double decker offers not just a life-affirming ride: it also has one of the prettiest views of the Eiffel Tower you can find.  Situated next to the Warsaw Fountain, which transforms quietly into a massive 'mirror' when it slumbers, you'll easily while away hours here and wonder where they vanished. The park bench and its furry friends are rarely visible to the naked eye ... but if the wind is blowing in a very particular way, you just might be lucky.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!

PS:  Acquire this artwork as a magnificent fine art print here.

Francophile Friday : Reflections on a Boulangerie

Life gives us many things on which to reflect, but this beautiful French boulangerie's windows offer up some especially lovely ones.

Today's Paris illustration is inspired by the very lovely Boulangerie Bo in the 12th arrondissement.  I've taken poetic license with some redecoration but if you've been there, you still might recognise it.  If you happen to spot a fluffy black cat while there, consider yourself one of the truly lucky ones.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!

PS:  This pretty Paris fine art print is available to order at Shell Sherree Studio in a range of sizes to suit various standard formats.  Also gorgeous for gifts!  US fine art print orders ship from the US, AU and all other orders ship from Australia carbon-neutral.

Francophile Friday : Pont Alexandre III View and Bicycle for Two

21.1.22

If you need incentive to dust off your pushbike, there's nothing like a Paris view!

Today's illustration sees our intrepid travellers Maggie and Marcel on a flower-laden quest for baguettes, framed by the gorgeous Pont Alexandre III.  

Named after Tsar Alexandre III, this beautifully ornate deck arch bridge is both an artistic and engineering masterpiece, with a single span steel arch measuring six metres high.  Its design had to ensure neither the Invalides nor Champs-Élysées was obscured.  Featured in many movies (who wouldn't want an excuse to film there?!) this beauty is a 'must-see', connecting the neighbourhoods of les Invalides and the Eiffel Tower with the Champs-Élysées.  Best enjoyed with a furry friend or two!  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!
