Opera Garnier interior (SOLD)

Oil on linen, 24x18

This one took me a week to do--I worked on it a little bit everyday. I decided to paint on my porch for better light and ventilation, but then it was hot.

I took the photo for this painting on the tour in Opera Garnier. I was fascinated by its rich interior, especially this sculpture holding the lights. It just makes you want to sing--I guess that's the point, isn't it?


  1. I love the drama in this painting! The figure is very powerful. I can see why you responded to the scene!

  2. Thank you Linda! Yes it was a striking scene. I could almost see those French ladies coming down the stairs in their big skirts!
