Thanks to the incredible reach of Facebook, I now have friends everywhere. They are from Europe, north and south America. Ok, I guess that’s not EVERYWHERE. This particular friend, who lives in the French Riviera on Rue Gioffredo shot this scene from his window. Thanks to Facebook I got to see this lovely scene and paint it and share it with you. He allowed me to use his photo as a reference for my painting, an 8.5″ x 11″ watercolor painting on fine Arches Paper.
