The creative, painted book sculptures of Pascal Courcelles
quickly caught my eye at Paris Art Fair
The bold colors, towering shapes....I wanted to know more.
More about the sculptures....More about the artist!
This thirst for more...sent me traveling to his studio outside Brussels.
His passion for his work was obvious as he talked about his inspiration for the book sculptures.
His deep belief that "books" are such a foundation of life, he included "his life" in his work...
Books from his parents, his grandparents...
books on art, books with knowledge, even a cookbook...
No longer left on shelves...but now part of his sculptures, to be seen, to be enjoyed!
Having his life part of his art continued in other works...
The colorful tall sculpture tower made from his used paint tubes...
Old Postcards received from friends...painted and now given new life.
Now, to be enjoyed in "our" homes...
Talk about "living green"!
Pascal Courcelles, an artist sharing his life, his love for color!

Finding special pieces for clients in France requires knowing the right sources, discovering new ones and
walking, walking, walking!
Before departing March 20 for 4 weeks in France, my daughter gave me a "FitBit", a wonderful small gadget that measures miles walked, steps walked, calories burned and connects to the computer at end of day.
My body has told me I walk milesssssss....but just how many???
And the miles are not always level....stairs galore in metros, 72 stairs to my 4th floor walkup studio apartment.
After 29 days, my total was 209.5 miles....one day 11.8 miles.
To put in perspective....Atlanta is 244 miles from Charlotte.
No wonder the French are healthy!
An Explorer...of beauty and all that delights. I travel to France, hand-selecting those pieces I wish to be surrounded by 24/7-with the hopes
you feel exactly the same.
