IMG_2291Worked on the cartoon poster and on the top three rows of keys, adding darks and lights. I was thinking about how to articulate what prompted me to paint this image.

The fact that this vintage typewriter is on the left bank of Paris inside the venerable Shakespeare & Co bookstore appeals to the old writer in me.

I love that the poster has a couple kissing (surely French kissing) and the photo of the painting is a version of the deposition of Christ’s body – sex and death.

The poster was for a festival of cartoonists in Paris, which puts me in mind of Charlie Hebdo.

I believe that freedom of expression, whether in words or images and so bitterly resisted by some, will prevail.

That yellow.
