La Dolce Vita

This is another dessert painting currently residing in the Art League closet.  I've always had a fondness for meringues.  When I was a kid, it was the only dessert I was allowed to eat.  Mother apparently thought the absence of fat content made the treat acceptable. (I had weekly weigh-ins with one or both parents in attendance.  I can't blame them, I was a lying sneak.)  Flash forward several decades.  I was in Carrara, Italy with Danni Dawson's workshop on a Sunday.  After we'd visited the marble quarries, we were famished.  We searched in vain for a ristorante.  We passed a Pasticceria with meringues in the window.  They, too, were closed, but a girl can dream.
