Pont Marie is one of the oldest bridges in Paris. It crosses the River Seine in Paris from the right bank near Hotel de Ville City Hall.
In this painting by well known Singapore artist Low Hai Hong, Pont Marie is painted in pure impressionist style.
Spontaneous brushstrokes capture the atmosphere at a fleeting moment in time, a moment decided by the lightning in the skies and the reflections on the water.
Excursion boats plying the River Seine claim that Pont Marie is a "lovers bridge" and it is a tradition to kiss the person next to you when the boat is below the bridge.
We don't know if it's true, but we can definitely feel an air of romance in this painting.
Do you feel it too?

This painting has been exhibited in public only once, in:
"A Tale of Two Rivers - a solo art exhibition by Low Hai Hong" was held at The Fullerton Heritage Gallery, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore from 30 May to 30 July 2014.
The exhibition showcased Low Hai Hong's 18 oil on Chinese rice paper paintings along the two rivers that he painted most in his artistic journey, the Singapore River in Singapore and the River Seine in Paris, France.
In an interview with the Singapore Chinese newspaper LianHeZaoBao for the exhibition, he explained that he "settled" on painting oil on Chinese rice paper after having tried watercolour, and experimenting oil on different types of paper.
"A Tale of Two Rivers" art exhibition continues with Singapore River's historic Fullerton Hotel.
