"Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the painter's soul." Vincent Van Gogh

One of my favorite paintings! This is the interior of Deyrolle's, a taxidermy studio in Paris. It was very famous and a well known tourist destination until it was destroyed by a fire several years ago. In my painting there is one aminal who has just arrived - and he is thinking "Is this feast or is this famine?" I will miss seeing this painting and hope it has gone to a good home.


  1. I'm sure it will be treasured for years to come...congratulations :)

  2. yes the owner is very luck,glad you had a sale Susan and hope all is well

  3. Wow- I am looking at all those amazing animals. I bet the owner feels like me- they could look at that forever. Wonderful painting and glad it sold!

  4. Je vous félicita ma chère pour cette vente... Elle va certes vous manquer, mais elle va apporter tant de bonheur dans ce nouveau foyer...
    gros bisous
