we must carry it with us or we find it not

The Artists' Square ..........



~   place du tertre ~
 
Many tourists don't speak kindly of Place-du-Tertre
with it's scramble of artists painting portraits of tourists
who are less than pleased with the results.
 
The talented artist above, loved the atmosphere
of painting en-plein-air amid the hustle and bustle
He was very dedicated to his craft.
Bravo Monsieur!
 
 

 
Some of the paintings were painted from photographs
in a style & era dictated by the buyer and were extremely detailed.

So few like pictures of themselves so it only stands to reason they would be displeased with the artistic interpretation of their image. Great photos to share a pleasurable visit to this location.

When I go to a new city and find these artists, I always spend time to browse at their art.

Oh, Dianne, what an enchanting portrait of this gentleman. My daughter bought a large oil painting at Place du Tertre. Now framed and hanging in their dining room, it makes me smile every time I see its vivid colors.

Wishing you a wonderful 2015.

Bises,
Genie
