I painted this scene with the intention of cropping it, but when it was finished was intrigued by the idea of making it a vignette. Oh, alright, so my husband actually suggested the vignette format and you KNOW I hardly ever listen to those suggestions, but then I thought "why not?" So let me know what YOU think. The location this photo was taken in was a beautiful bed and breakfast in the small town of Sarlat in the south of France. It was just a lovely, sunny summer morning and breakfast was on the terrace. This piece is cropped to 9.5 x 9.5 inches, painted on 300# Arches watercolor paper.
