oooh la la is right-- so 'french', so lovely-- just enough texture to balance the imagery and sentiment.

You've created a wonderfully romantic piece Lisa! I love how you enhance the eifel tower photo by using black around the edge. It really defines it without overwhelming the simple structure. I must say though that this whole piece seems 'minimalist' after what I am used to seeing here!
Congrats on your commission!
