Paint Party Friday....meet me at Ladurée




Hello Everyone....and Happy Friday....

I am taking a little virtual stroll in Paris and popping by the Ladurée window to see what they have ....and this virtual trip has inspired my latest Ladurée painting.....I am a huge fan of beautiful window scenes and love to stand outside beautiful bakeries and cafes gazing into the window like a little child gazes into a candy store....so much to see and be inspired by....and something really weird comes over you....a sense of Happiness and for a moment you forget all your troubles and cares and just enjoy the view....

awe how much fun it is to stop and smell the roses from time to time...

I will be working hard to enjoy the wonder of Autumn this weekend....whether it be apple picking or a brisk walk through the woods....it is all magical to me....and I don't want to miss one little bit.....

Wishing you all a wonder filled weekend.....

Happy Paint Party Friday and Happy Creating Everyone!!!


Prints available in my Etsy Shop....

Your illustrations are delightful and I can imagine the glee with which you would stare into the window at such wonderful goodies (although I get the same sense of happiness in an art supply shop!)
