Day 118: f*ing friday :: funny fabulous france

27 Apr

F*ing Fridays are back!
And, they will continue to occur on Friday. I mentioned some of my favorite F words back on Day 5 in Year 1, including: Fearless, Fabulous, Fine, Fun, Faith, Freedom, Forgiveness, to name a Few.

Last week I dove into the word Fetch

Today’s F*ing Friday is dedicated to the words:
Funny, fabulous, France.

As in, pure art. 

Today was fun and fabulous in Paris.
And, we met a woman who is out to prove it.

Her name is Susan Shup.
And her art is FABULOUS!

We entered her Parisian studio through a gigantic medieval looking gate, walked through a courtyard and then winded our way up spiral steps until we arrived inside her work space with paint splattered walls.

The paint was still fresh and the air smelled like it too.
Her paintings are also fresh, funny and fabulous.

Her mantras captured in graphic letters and whimisical strokes say it all.
Like this one:

And, on an F*ing Friday like today…
With Food…

French Flags…

French Fashion…

Behind the scenes of French Fashion…

And Fragile Parisian pieces…

Pure art is what I have on my mind.

It’s great to see that art doesn’t have to be serious or subdued to be powerful, intriguing and thought provoking.

It can be funny and fabulous.
Or fresh and fragile.

Because, really, aren’t we all…
And, isn’t that what makes us priceless?

    Jamie, thanks for your refreshing outlook on life. Your Paris blogs take me back to the many times I have walked her streets and experienced her beauty. If you have time and love hot chocolate, try Angelina’s on rue de Rivoli across the street from the Louvre. Wishing you all the best!

      Thank you Krist! Love that you are following along, just like you are in Paris with us 😉 I will add Angelina’s to our list for when we hit the Louvre!

        You’re most welcome. The best hot chocolate they have (at least in my opinion) is the Afrikaan or something like that. It’s been four years since I traveled their last. Please be aware that it is VERYYY rich and is best mixed with real cream. YUM! Enjoy!
