Plymouth Arts Center Holiday Membership Exhibition

   Honfleur   watercolor   11 x 14   $350

 

   I Left My Heart in Paris
   by Jane Kautzer

Honfleur and  I left My Heart in Paris will be on exhibit at Gallery 110 North, Plymouth as part of the Plymouth Arts Center 22nd Holiday Membership Exhibition.

I have traveled a lot since my retirement last October.   My wife and I stayed in Europe for seven weeks this year and explored northern France, Barcelona, and London.  I painted nearly every day. Honfleur was painted on a bright sunny day.   My wife took the photo of  locks on Pont des Arts Bridge.  Large sections of the bridge were covered with locks until 2015 when Paris authorities removed the locks to protect the integrity of the bridge. Come see the show and talk to me about my trip.

The show will be up from December 1 – January 12, 2018.
