"Foggy Paris Afternoon"

Oil on museum quality ampersand gessobord panel
8" x 10"

  The cupids and sea monsters that festoon this ornamental candelabra were produced by artist, H Gauquic.  There are four of these unique lamp posts located on the Pont Alexandre III bridge in Paris.  It was a particularly foggy autumn afternoon when I stood on the bridge and the Eiffel Tower in the distance was shrouded in mist.
