Paris In Springtime

It's springtime, so these days my thoughts keep turning to Paris.  I was inspired to paint and create this new Springtime in Paris pendant, and I love the colors so much I leave it out in my studio and glance over at it every day!

I was even inspired to paint these macaroons with watercolor paints.  I've never actually had a macaroon, but the photos and colors make them look so yummy, I like them before I've even tried them!

I remembered this time to take a photo of my pendant in the middle of painting it.  For some reason this is something I don't usually think of.  In this case it kind-of looks like wintertime in Paris.

We actually had the opportunity to visit Paris about 9 years ago.  We were only there for almost 3 days, and believe me that's not nearly long enough!  We did get to visit the Eiffel Tower and rode to the top.  As you can see, it was a little foggy that day but still just as exciting as ever.

Not quite France, but these pink tulips are still all spring.  This is a new pendant that will be added to my Etsy shop soon.  I can't wait to see the real ones in bloom in the backyard!

Happy Spring!
