Friday was a wonderful day for me! It was my birthday and my fantastic husband whisked me away for brunch at la maison de gaufre. We did some sight seeing at the quaint ville de fontaine and then took in a movie at le cinema regal. As the heat of the afternoon began to ease we headed for a nice bike ride along les collines de sterchi trainent. Macaroons would have made my day perfect!  Ahhhhh, it was still a wonderful, wonderful day!

Have you noticed how everything sounds so romantic and wonderful in French? 

Have a great day!

"Spring Cascade"

Finally "Spring Cascade is finished!

I have to say I learned so much from working on this painting. When I chose the photo for this I thought, "How difficult can painting white flowers be, I've painted them before?" That was my first mistake, they aren't white but the softest blush of pink. 

My favorite part was and still is the way the buds cascade from the top down the left side of the painting.
