Their love of art, history, old world charm, food, their clear love and affection for each other and the Ladybug, a symbol of their serendipitous reunion are all captured in this artful photo-into-canvas portrait that was inspired by the 1880 painting, At the Cafe, Rouen, by Gustave Caillebotte. Fun Fact: The artist, J.Ridout, and his wife are both depicted in the mirror along with a member of the Cafe Pacific staff.
