{ tempting me tuesday: gorgeous paintings by Paris Gerrard }


Currently taking delight in the beautiful and captivating paintings of this talented, young artist,
Paris Gerrard



A self-described art nerd, Paris grew up in a family of artists and recalls expressing herself through art since early childhood. Fresh, passionate and well spoken, Paris currently lives in Salt Lake City, Utah where she shares studio space with her mother, Jill Barton–also an amazingly gifted artist.





Sophisticated without being stuffy, Paris' paintings have a fun, lighthearted essence–capturing the splendor of simple pleasures and everyday objects.  I'm hoping she will continue with her bicycle series of paintings–alas, the two pictured above have already sold. { I've started saving my pennies just in case }.



You can learn more about Paris and the inspiration behind her paintings by taking a stroll over to the ever so lovely blog, Black Eiffel, where Paris is this week's guest blogger. For purchase inquiries and to view more of her paintings, visit her website

These are wonderful, I especially like the last one, the feet say so much about what the person is thinking about at that moment.
