Ile Saint-Louis, Paris

I’ve been painting this in my mind since I saw it in Paris a week or so ago. This woman and her rabbit were on a bridge on the Ile Saint- Louise in Paris. As soon as I saw them, I saw the painting I wanted to make; two forms joined in the great dark that was her skirts, minimal colour, just the large shapes to tell the story. ┬áThe rabbit’s leash is some kind of joining piece and ┬áseemed like a life line too, for both of them. This is the first sketch.
