Walking in Toulouse

A 9x12 oil on canvas painting of a view of a side street in Toulouse.  Toulouse is a wonderful city, not as stressful as Paris, and warmer being in the southwest of France.  It marks the start of a canal that runs from Garonne River all the way to the Mediterranean Sea, creating a link from the Atlantic Ocean.    The canal was built during the time of King Louis XIV.  What I found appealing about this view is the shadowy foreground.  I also like the walking figure below the sculpture.
