Painted Mannequin

Hotel du Louvre Mannequin, by Brooksby

After every exhibition there is always a downtime.

I can hardly believe a month has passed since my signing, the dédicace. It was a fantastic success.A big turnout. Lots of paintings sold. A big thank you  Aurélia, Edith and Charlotte for your engagement.

This mannequin is one of the things I’ve worked on in the last four weeks. It’s from a painting I made of Place Colette. The building is the Hotel du Louvre. It’s lit from below with red lights. It’s at the end of Avenue de l’Opéra.

Lots of Parisian buildings are lit from below, often with white lights. During the Christmas season some buildings are illuminated by changing lights. It’s hypnotic to watch the colors of the rainbow flow over the façades of the Galeries Lafayette and Le Bon Marché.

I’m also working on sculpture but I won’t post any photos until the project is finished. It’s top secret. Something completely different.
