"Sun-dappled Patio in Provence"

pastel 20" x 13" 2002

Don't you love the effect of sunlight dappled through the trees? What sumptuous color. This restaurant looked so inviting, as it rested between lunch and dinner. French people dine late in the evening, a habit I will need to adjust to. But this tranquil scene is one I simply like to gaze at. The typical Provencal fabric on the tablecloths, lyrical wrought iron, the hanging flowers and vines. I hope to go back and dine there. The food has to be good.
