About This Image

A remarkable mural in La Souterraine, which is incredibly realistic!

Thanks Vicki! Yes, it was expecting rather a lot for anyone to have recognised her from this miniscule image!! :) We don't let our French house - we're far too possessive about it for that!!! We were married in France but not in this town. Our wedding was in Le Dorat - you can see a night time picture of the church here on TLF entitled "La Coll├ęgiale du Dorat".

That was sneaky - the photo's a wee bit small to realize it was her there! Are you letting the new place or going back and forth quite a bit? Is this where you two were married? Vicki

Thanks, Vicki - I thought you'd like this painting! Funny you should mention my wife as she's the small figure just emerging from the shadows into the sunlight! No, she's not French, but she loves the place as much as I do, and we're both looking forward to moving there to live in a few years' time.

I love these paintings, Steve. It doesn't even fight the old town's essence. Just wonderful. As often as you head for the Continent, is your beautiful wife French? Vicki

Thanks Golda and Mike! Yes, I've been lazing around in France over Easter! And Mike, I know which picture you're talking about - one I took in Limoges. I suspect, but I don't know for sure, that both murals were done by the same artist.
