Around the terrace, Maison Solveig

Astrid, the owner of Maison Solveig, is an artist in her other life. The restaurant has linited hours in the winter and she must do her art then. The porch reflects her artistry. She has a small black pug and a huge cat. The statue fooled me the first time. She has also planted her little terrace beautifully, with a grapevine shading it all summer. My guess would be that she made the little seahorses around the spouts of her fountain. The frog is a detail of a painting that she hung on the wall, or so I thought. When making the picture I noticed that the texture was not canvas, but stucco. She, very cleverly, painted the frog and then hung a frame around it.
