Ruby Café

Oil on wood panel, 2018, 24" diameter x 0.75"d

In France, everywhere you turn there is a beautiful and quaint café. These cafés are not meant to be vessels for selling food. No, Parisian cafés are meant to sell a mood. As soon as you walk in, your senses flourish. Exquisite views of flowers and intricate decor, delicious smells of pastries and coffee, and a steady flow of people socializing in their gorgeous language—French. Through monochromatic red hues, intricate detailing and whimsical brushstrokes, the work embodies a mellow and alluring setting.
