" CHEZ MARIE "



                                       8  x  11        Pen & Ink & Watercolor

" Chez Marie " is a small cafe in Paris very close to Montmartre. I thought I would post this drawing I just finished for CHRisTMAS.
First the place is red and second it is called Chez Marie and I thought it could be the new version for the stable where christ was born, " At Mary's place " After all he was put in a trough and that's where you put the food you give to the animals, since he is feeding us still I thought it a perfect correlation.
BLESSINGS and MERRY CHRISTMAS to All

BTW this piece is from my pen & Ink blog Dancing Strokes but I really like the idea so I'm posting here too.

Cher Dominique,
You truly captured the essence of a French cafe here and your use of red, your editing of color is brilliant, truly inspired.
Thanks for explaining the Twelve Days of Christmas lyrics on my blog, the song now makes sense to me.
Much love and Bonne année.
David
