About This Image

Whatever the time of day, the sweeping modern lines of the Louvre pyramid are pretty impressive, but as night fell… Well, I believe that literally and figuratively, that massive glass pyramid shines as the sun goes down and the golden lights of the Louvre come to life. Doesn’t it look like a massive crystal glowing in the center of the Louvre courtyard?

I’ve mentioned before that I love the eclectic mix of architecture. I really appreciate it when people are unafraid to mix old and new designs. So it was almost a foregone conclusion that I would be impressed by the Louvre! Isn’t the traditional French Renaissance style striking against the smooth modern angles of the Louvre pyramid?

Would that I were so fortunate to stay in Paris for longer than a week… I’m sure many people think that… But I have no question I would have been back in this courtyard many nights even if just to gaze in wonder… Ah, but of course, I would have my camera, who am I kidding?

This image was from my last night in Paris, though. Yet I must admit several years later, I remain quite pleased with my singular attempt to capture this majestic space as night fell on Paris. The Louvre pyramid is incredibly striking and unforgettable. And it’s particularly beautiful against those deep dusk blue skies. I sincerely hope to revisit my time in picturesque Paris some day but it doesn’t mean I would expect to per se surpass this memorable print. It’s not always possible to catch lightning twice, but it’s fun to try, don’t you think?

I’ve found this Golden Louvre pyramid seems to appeal both to people who have likewise stood in that same spot as well as those who simply dream of some day getting that same chance. To which group do you belong?

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
