Pont au Change, Paris 1987

Painting by Vicky Christensen, acrylic on 12 X 16 inch canvas
This painting is based on a photo I took in 1987 while on a business trip in Paris. This is the Pont au Change bridge over the Seine. My source photo was bleached out, probably from the changes that occur to color prints after many years, and also probably because the day was hazy. I have punched up the color a bit in the foreground. And this is the first of my paintings that I remembered to sign with my initials!

One thing you'll notice is that there are no people and no vehicles. I still am afraid to paint people. One of these days I hope to get beyond that
