Café du Monde, on Decatur Street


This is an 11 x 14 watercolor that I painted from a camera phone snapshot I took in the French Quarter this winter at the famous Café du Monde on Decatur. They are well known for those delicious deep fried pastries sprinkled in confectioners sugar, the beignet. 

I was surprised to see that my table vignette is pretty typical. Do a google image search for "beignet" or "café du monde" and you'll see what I mean.
