Self portrait on wet paving stones (2010-13) by New Zealand expatriate artist Douglas MacDiarmid (acrylic on paper, 57 x 76cm). This is a classic Paris street scene, the shadow of our artist out on his daily walk reflected in the cobblestones found in all the old quarters of the city. This painting started as simply a view of wet pavers, but the long, lean shadow in overcoat and hat proved irresistible as a statement of self. #painter
