Description
On this Saturday morning, the central square of Avignon, in the Provence region of Southern France, is full of young people. Sitting, drinking, talking, socializing with friends; they are enjoying the warm spring sunshine at the many small tables spread outside the surrounding cafés. The Plain trees are budding out to make a green and yellow arbor over the scene. We were touring France and had just arrived at Avignon on this beautiful Saturday morning. So we joined the crowd, sipped our own drinks, and took photographs to record the event for this painting.
