Morning in a village bistro near Paris. Bertrand says he was drawn to the quiet tranquility of the scene. He depicted the woman looking directly out at the viewer, possibly a subtle nod to his own voyeurism in the moment. Gentle sunlight falls across the interior, highlighting small details throughout.
Bertrand Girard remembers painting as a child, and eventually turned his passion into a profession. Each piece he creates is a way for him to express his feelings. Many of his works depict landscapes and scenes from Paris, but these vignettes serve as a way to capture a mood, not just a place.

As a writer I hope to take my readers to a new place, explore a new experience, explain a new perspective. With each of our three Girard paintings (Morning Coffee) we have our breakfast at a stand-up Parisian bar, (Leaving Under the Rain) we watch a friend leaving us to wonder if that was her last visit and now (The Cat on the Roof) we explore the roofs of Paris from the perspective of a curious cat. All are wonderful views.- R Keil
Thank you so much for your beautiful artwork! I love the winter scene and can't wait to visit Luxembourg Garden in the future. I look forward to seeing your new artwork.- D Thomas
You can smell the strong coffee and pastry. Concern and respect for privacy from the server is captured by Girard, who is probably sketching at a table unnoticed...- R Keil
