April In Paris (Part Three)

This impressive building contains museums and monuments all relating to the military history of France.  It is also a hospital and retirement home for war veterans as well as the burial site of some of France's war heroes - including Napoleon, who is entombed under the dome.

"Les Invalides"   20" x 16"   Oil

"Parisienne"   14" x 11"   Oil

I titled this painting "Parisienne", but my subject is more likely a tourist than a native Parisian.  I saw her posing for a street artist in Montmartre and later noticed I was under the watchful eye of the lady in the window (the girl's mother?).
