After a very busy day sightseeing in Paris, I wanted to do even more sightseeing by visiting one of Ernest Hemingway's old haunts, Brasserie Lipp. We got all dressed up in our finest Paris attire, which caused us to arrive a bit late in the evening. We ended up being one of the last tables occupied, but I once heard that it is customary in Europe to drink coffee or tea after dinner. Even if it isn't, I still like the idea. While I waited for my coffee, I tried to snap a picture of the room, as for once nobody was there to get in my way or to witness my touristy behavior. While the photo snapped, the waiter rounded the corner with my coffee. Oil on 14"h x 18"w stretched canvas. SOLD.
This was the cafe my husband and I visited on our anniversary after we went to the opera in Vienna (quick travel tip: I learned from my Rick Steves book that you can get inexpensive standing room only opera tickets in Vienna, which is what we did. That way you get the opera experience, but if you're like us and don't speak the language, and therefore have no idea what's going on, you can leave early.) At this cafe, I had my first experience with pancake soup. There are thin strips of pancakes in broth, rather than noodles, and it is very good. Oil on 20"h x 16"w stretched canvas. SOLD.
Oil on 12"h x 16" w stretched canvas. This was one of my favorite cafes in Vienna. It seemed to be filled with locals during their lunch break (rather than tourists.) It was also tricky to find, but I persisted, as my agenda during that trip was to visit as many cafes as possible. There, I had my first ever bowl of liver dumpling soup (it was a giant meatball made of liver, and it was very good.) SOLD.

I have been working on a ton of new paintings during the past few months. Many have been finished for a long time, but I hadn't had time to post them until now. That is the reason behind the several new additions today. Most of the ones below are available for sale at www.ugallery.com, but are not live on the site yet. When they are, I will provide links to my page on that site.
