fresh paint

over the last 2 weeks, ben and i have been enduring the long lines wrapping around the museums, our bodies inching slowly in unison for a glimpse at some of the new exhibits around paris - warhol at the grand palais, kandinsky and calder at the pompidou. this past weekend we went to the musée de l’orangerie, in the tuileries garden, where contemporary painter didier paquignon was showing a selection of his work in the main gallery. we were unfamiliar with the artist and eager to see his work, especially on such a large scale. the exhibit encompassed his creations from over the last 20 years, including urban and industrial landscapes, female nudes, and still lifes. the bright colors and tremendous energy in his pieces was exciting to see.
