I told the owner of The Olive Oil Outpost, as she was making up my small order of four mini macarons (after making me another delicious cafe con leche for the morning) that I was going to paint these before eating them. I made it, but am not that happy about this little painting, so it's a good thing that I took a few photo references so I can try again.
We spent Saturday-Saturday on Anna Maria Island in a nice home we rented for the week. The last few days were rainy so Sweetie and I went outside to take photos of the rain streaming down the screens over the swimming pool area. It made for some interesting photos, abstracted by the water in the screens and showing the trees outside the pool area.
Sweetie was brave (or crazy) enough to get in the heated (at 80F) pool while we were there on a sunny day. It was too chilly for me but I did dip a toe in to test it.
