Paint Party Friday....Paris in the Springtime.....or shall I say Laduree in the Springtime.....





Hi Everyone.....

I hope you all had a lovely week filled with inspiration....we had another winter storm and I am so ready for Spring.....so I have been painting as inspired by Paris in the Spring time...especially Ladurée and their magical Spring windows.......

Here is an ink and watercolor piece I created as my homage to Spring in Paris with Macarons for everyone....

I am in love with all things Paris and I have a whole section of Paris inspired art in my Etsy Shop to prove it.....and this is my newest print in that section....

I hope you all have an amazing Friday and start to the weekend....

Happy PPF and Happy Creating Everyone....

I have a friend and she bakes Macarons looking like they come from Laduree. Sadly she lives to far away to taste her creations. And spiring will come. I'm sure. Happy PPF!

Hi Diana,

I love this big cake and colored macaroons, one of my favorite cookies!

I never really understood the whole obsession with macaroons until some friends went to Paris and brought some back from here... I was blown away! Your painting is a delight - its delicacy perfectly matches the softness and pastel shades of the little melt in the mouth magic moments. You should send it to them, see if they want to buy a print to hang in their store!

Comment ne pas craquer pour les macarons de Ladurée ?... pour les macarons tout court !!...
Je fais souvent des macarons mais malheureusement ils ne résistent pas à plus d'une journée dans le plat !...
J'adore ma chère Diana tes dessins avec mes amis les macarons ! je prends des kilos rien qu'à les admirer.
j'espère bien qu'un jour prochain nous aurons l'occasion de nous rencontrer en France... et alors si tu veux nous allons nous mettre "vilaine" en dégustant ces merveilles!
gros bisous à toi et bon weekend aussi... Il commence ce soir!

Mmmmm-I can just taste those delish macroons form a shop in Paris!! I too love all things French-and funny I did a Paris in the Springtime page last week-but it's on my Flcr page not my blog. Beautiful illustrations Diana!

Tracey Fletcher King said...

Love the line of macarons along the bottom, though they look amazing in all the drawings... they are our favourite treat in our house ... and hope spring hurries your way and that means that Autumn might hurry to us...xx

Hi Diana! The watercolor is so pretty! Love the colors and the lines of the ink. Looks like you have been taking advantage of being stuck indoors. Have a great weekend!

JoyCorcoran said...

Such a lovely arrangement of macaroons! I love all the blue and the delicate ink work. Butterflies, flowers and cookies -- your Spring from Paris is enticing.
