Art Print Notes:
Paris is one of those places that’s simply gorgeous, but I think evening in Paris is especially so and was the inspiration fro this painting. The dusk skies and the glowing Paris Metro sign say Parisian to me. They speak of the art nouveau architecture that drips through Paris like droplets of water after a rain. Paris is Paris because it embraced Art Nouveau over a century ago. Of course there’s more to Parisian architecture than just Art Nouveau, but in my opinion, it’s the Art Nouveau style that’s come to be the frosting on the cake in Paris. It pulls the rest together.
The Parisian subway system game into existence when Art Nouveau was at its peak and all the way to today they still embrace that style in the signs and entrances to the subway stations. While I was in Paris some years back, I was constantly on the hunt for the picture perfect Paris Metro signs and entrances. And I think the signs like the one in this evening in Paris painting are at their most beautiful once night is falling. From dusk straight through til night, these are at their most eye-catching when the sun has reached the horizon and the lights of Paris are coming on. So, that was obviously the way I wanted to capture this little sliver of the Parisian experience.
I’ve said often that Paris has remained an inspiration long after I left. It’s getting close to a decade since I wandered the streets of Paris, but the evening in Paris will always be special to me because that’s how I first experienced Paris. It was winter so the days were admittedly short and on top of that my flight in was delayed. So I spent my first day in Paris getting to know the city by lamplight.
I would love if you took a moment to share your thoughts about this Evening in Paris painting. Does it remind you of a visit to the city of lights? Were you looking specifically for Paris Metro sign art prints or simply wanted a piece of wall art that captured the ethereal beauty of Paris as night falls?
Wonder what past print buyers think?
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.

I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
