Au Bord de La Seine by Pat Kofahl

A river trip on the Seine gives the visitor to Paris a unique perspective of the city, in addition to an understanding of the profound and inextricable relationship between the city and the river, since its founding in the 3rd century BCE. In 1991 UNESCO added the banks of the Seine in Paris—the Rive Gauche and Rive Droite—to its list of World Heritage Sites.This fine art image by Pat Kofahl is available in multiple sizes on paper, canvas, metal and plexiglass.

Just Framed here at Esprit Decor Gallery

Yesterday, this striking Limited Edition print was brought to us by a Phoenix collector of Grateful Dead related art. Uniquely, the printed image itself is accented with reflective foil in specific areas. Our first rule is to never detract from the art with our framing choices. In this case, we matched the intense colors in the print by using electric blue and red Crescent conservation rag mats. Then, to bring out the foil sections, we used a special mirrored surface frame and fillet manufactured by Larson-Juhl and the results are spectacular! A tasteful but dynamic combination that accents the art. It just so happens that our client was at this particular concert and now he'll remember the event every day when he looks at his framed art on the wall of his home. And that's what we're all about here at Esprit Decor Gallery. We make memories.

Afternoon Promenade – Photography by Pat Kofahl

Paris in the spring is truly magical. The weather changes minute by minute, clouds scud across the sky, a profusion of boats ply their trade (mostly tourists, these days!) up and down the Seine, and the trees and shrubs dot the landscape with tiny explosions of color. Over it all the Iron Lady calmly and elegantly commands the attention of young and old, secure in her dominion over this lovely city that even strangers wish to call home.This fine art image by Pat Kofahl is available in multiple sizes on paper, canvas, metal and plexiglass.

After Midnight – Sacré Cœur new photography by Pat Kofahl

Café culture in Paris: a sidewalk table, a leisurely glass of red or two, conversation converning little things or world affairs, perhaps even a kiss. it's a tableau that unwinds endlessly, night after night, here in the city that never seems to have to get up in the morning.This fine art image by Pat Kofahl is available in multiple sizes on paper, canvas, metal and plexiglass.

Sacré Cœur – Soir New Photography by Pat Kofahl

Night at the Basilica of Sacré Cœur, and the tourists have gone. A slight Spring chill has arrived with the setting sun and the occasional footfall on cobblestones echoes in the darkness. The stars begin to peek out overhead and a few light wisps of clouds sail across the landscape. Silence descends, and night has come to the city of light.This fine art image by Pat Kofahl is available in multiple sizes on paper, canvas, metal and plexiglass. Prices start at $49.00!
