About This Image

If you’ve ever walked up the huge hill in Montmartre to visit Sacré Coeur, then this print may well remind you of the sight that greeted you at the top of the highest hill in Paris. Even though I stayed in Montmartre while I was in Paris, it was a few days before I built up the gumption to climb that hill. I knew there was a funicular that would whisk me straight to the top, but where was the fun in that?

And I took a good number of pictures of Sacré Coeur rising over that hill from a variety of landings on the way up, but this one just before the last flight of stairs is my personal favorite. And it’s very hard for me to pick favorites among my own artwork, so that says something. I simply love the looming domes and towers and the other people climbing those steps on a beautiful winter day in Paris. This print is like a record of the ascension to Sacré Coeur, a visual representation of the accomplishment.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the landmark church at the top of that last flight of steps is simply gorgeous. In fact, I think it may be that the Romano-Byzantine architecture of Sacré Coeur made it my favorite church in Paris. Before I visited Paris, I expected that title to land with the medieval gothic Notre Dame Cathedral. And Notre Dame was absolutely breath-taking, mind you. But the curving almost organic lines of Sacré Coeur felt more like Paris to me, a city where Art Nouveau really flourished. There was a graceful elegance to Sacré Coeur that still says Paris to me every time I see this print.

Have you also climbed those long flights of stairs to Sacré Coeur in Montmartre? Or are you simply bowled over by its memorable architecture?

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.
