Work of the Week — “Pont d’Asniero” by Annie Cardin
by Sadie Allen
I’ve always dreamed of visiting France, particularly for its rich history and even better food. Annie Cardin’s piece Pont d’Asniero illustrates the impeccable nature of the country perfectly. The simplistically beautiful illustration on the clean background is made even more stunning by the green and orange hues used in the piece. This dreamy illustration is peppered with people wandering aside a river, no doubt enjoying the weather and relaxing.
