Avant Paris - Cycle Chic Art

Before we embark on La Semaine du Vélib' and our love affair with Parisian bike culture, here's a little aside.
Painting by Janet Karam at Funkytown-art.com
An artist named Janet Karam asked me a while back if she could use one of my photos as a reference for a painting. The result is beautiful and quite stunning and not a little humbling. Art imitating art. What a splendid result. The original photo is below.
Red Light Waiting*

Janet has a Flickr Photostream here and you can see the painting on her website here. It is available for purchase.

Thanks for a wonderful, fruitful collaboration, Janet!
