Carpe Diem #969 France

h3>Many famous paintings are based on real life scenes in France.  The image below was based on a real life cafe in Aries, France.  In 1991 the cafe was redone to look like Van Gogh’s painting.

Then there is another of my favorite  paintings by the French impressionist painter Monet, the Waterlily  Pond and Weeping Willow. It’s inspiration is  located in Monet’s garden in Giverny.
