Book Enthusiast

Book Enthusiast  6x6 oil on board
When I saw this collector on the left bank in Paris
I had to snap a reference photo to
bring back to my studio.
I love a good book don't you?

I'm trying to stay as loose as possible and still give you 
enough information to understand the subject.
It's a really fun process inspired by my 
recent flirtation with watercolors.
Thanks for viewing and comments are welcomed!



  1. I love this loose style really works and is very pretty!

  2. Hi Rochelle, thank you so much for commenting. This one is actually an oil but I'm trying to keep it loose. Glad you like it!

  3. I love the minimal amount of information you included with maximum feeling of being in the place. Lived in Paris as a kid, love your European paintings Bruce.

    1. Thank so much Anne, I appreciate you commenting. I enjoyed meeting you and seeing your work during the challenge. I can see how Fairfield Porter has influenced your work. I love his work as well.
