"Painted when my parents went to the South of France, this was one of Mom's favorite watercolors and she kept it framed on the walls of her house all her life. What made this town very special is that my parents met Mme. Hardy and stayed in her hotel, and loved that her name was the same as my dad's. He painted this scene of the village from a window in Mme. Hardy's inn."
