Painting in France? – at Le Macaron

What a fun experience today! 10 sketchers met at the beautiful and charming Le Macaron pastry shop at the Avenues Mall. We had planned to stay there for an hour, then go upstairs to Le Crepes, but it was so full of delightful things to draw – and good sweets to eat – we never left until lunch time. Tahar, our very French server, reconfigured the tables so we were all together and continuously brought us coffee and croissants. My favorite pastry to get in France is pain au chocolat, and Le Macaron’s were delicious. The “big bosses,” Fabrice and Marie, came in as we were drawing and were generous and flattering with their comments. This is a place to which we’ll go back! (FYI: Tahar will be opening his own Le Macaron in 3 weeks – in Avondale next to Blue Fish. Yea!)le macaron.jpg

Not all the sketches are here. One I lost in Computer Heaven, and I can’t find it. Will post it next time if it magically appears…. 😦
