Lunch with Champagne or Champagne for Lunch: I keep changing my mind what to call this painting. It must have something to do with how much Champagne you want to drink. Regardless which title, this painting is a celebration of light: direct light from the windows, the glow of chandeliers, the reflections on champagne bottles, reflections on the interior windows, and the shadowed area through the distant door that hides mysteries of more amazing art sequestered in the restaurant at Musee D'Orsay. It's a wonderful place to enjoy the amazing art on display, including sculpture and ornate murals on the walls and ceiling. This restaurant hummed with activity and definitely hit the spot from a culinary perspective as well.  Of course what else would you expect in Paris.  

This painting was selected to be included in Splash 19, what I consider nirvana in the watercolor world. I was one of 126 artists selected for the publications from a field of over 1700. I feel giddy, like maybe I've been drinking too much Champagne.
