Two things were at play here. I want to do more work in 8x10 and not just because I can charge more. When we make 5x7 prints they'll be more crisp. Plus there will be an appreciable different between original and print.
So second part. Why macaroons with a squirrel? I mean shouldn't this page be full of nuts? I thought about it. Looked up nut desserts and scrolled through tons of reference images. And everything was brown. Brown drinks, brown pies, brown brown brown. And then macaroons which are full of color popped onto my screen. Why are there macaroons on my screen? I look closer... nuts in extract form. Lots of macaroons have nut extract. I had found my nut dessert that the squirrel could be going nutty over.
