Let them eat Macarons!


Hi Everyone....I am a bit early to the Paint Party Friday event this week....but can you blame a girl....I just got a shipment of my watercolour paper from France and I was so excited when the courier came that he thought I may have lost my mind....

So what better things to paint on French paper....than a special Ladurée window featuring some colourful and fun treats....so here is my latest watercolour painting....these colours just make me so happy.....

Have you been to Paris and enjoyed a treat at Ladurée? ......and did you know that Ladurée is a luxury cakes and pastries brand based in Paris, France. It is known as the inventor of the double-decker macaron, fifteen thousand of which are sold every day. (That is amazing) They are still one of the best known makers of macarons in the world. I am selling the original painting in my Etsy Shop and prints too.....if you want to see some cute illustrations you have to check out their site....adorable!!!!!!



I am also working on a whole bunch of new watercolour cut out Paris inspired cards.....my shop is running low so I had to!!! these are so much fun to create!

amazing how some special art supplies can make ones week so happy!!!! oh and if you read my blog and love it....you can vote for me.......


I have been nominated....but anyone can also vote for me by heading to the site link here.....you can vote for my blog each and every day till the contest ends....what a wonderful day indeed!!!

Thank you for reading my blog and thank you for your vote....

Nice to know I have visitors!!!!

Hugs and Happy Creating!!!

Hi Diana,

Oh yes please...I will have a macaron! your Laduree window is perfect, just how it looks and the colours are gorgeous.
We enjoyed lunch there and I think it was my favourite meal, while in France.
Off now to vote for you, good luck!

Happy weekend

Such a beautiful painting! How wonderful that you get watercolour paper shipped all the way from France - is it special paper that you can't get locally? I love the subject matter although fear I can no longer eat such things (unless I find a vegan alternative!)

Megan said...

I love the bright colors... it feels as if I'm standing there taking in this sweet sight in person :) Wonderful job!

The best treats of all are the painted one- 'cause they are calorie free! And no, you're not alone in getting excited over new supplies- I always feel like it's Christmas whenever a Dick Blick box arrives :D
Happy PPF (a day late ;))
