|Nicolas de Staël - The Night of Paris, 1954|

I'm going off the grid for a bit to one of the best places on Earth -- Paris.
I was there for one weekend about 10 years ago and have been praying to go back.
This trip is actually as close as I will probably ever get to a pilgrimage; as after we are in Paris for a few days we are going down into Provence and the Riviera to the land of my painting gods --
Cezanne's Aix-en-Provence, Bonnard's Le Cannet, Picasso's Antibes, Van Gogh's Arles.
There is also a bunch of de Stael's work on view at the Picasso Museum. I can barely contain myself.
I'll bring back some souvenirs, I promise.
