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.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
