Paint Party Friday #32 Burst of Joy

I'm straggling into paint party Friday late, after a long lull. This week I digitally altered a photo of my large acrylic " Burst of Joy". It's a favorite painting done last year.   The vibrant colors bring me so much joy, as it greets me every morning at the bottom of my stairs!  My large acrylics are often painted so they can be hung in any direction. I like the idea of being able to change a painting around to get a different look.
 I decided to alter Burst of Joy  by shrinking it down in the paint program, then cutting the best pieces and pasting them into another window. The outcome is this digital piece which I then printed out for a  reusable travel mug. Which I carry in my car!
There you have it I'm able to enjoy my art in a mini pattern while sipping on my morning coffee! The Colors printed out so nicely too! It's richer looking in person!
I also whipped up this quick little hair piece forty minutes before my daughter was to attend a family wedding. It's a wonder what a few feathers and some crazy glue can do to make a dollar store hair band look high end! She had many compliments on it all evening. 
As you can see I'm not the only one who loves color in this house! My son in law found these purple leather shoes that he built a whole outfit around!  Dear Daughter, much like her mom loves color too! I had a dress the same color and material when I was young!
Since she was little she would spy items she loved then wait until they went on sale. She watched almost daily for the little magenta purse to drop from it's original price, sure enough she finally got it for a steal! 
There they are in wonderful  jewel tones. I love them both sooo much when I see them all dressed up like this it makes my eyes dance!! Hope you all have a happy week ahead!

Love what you did with the mug. Love your piece as well. Wow, your daughter and her husband look like they are ready to go out on the town. How fun. I forgot what it's like going out on the town, it's been so long. Happy week to you.

What fun to come here and browse your blog. Clever idea to use your own art on your mug. And I, too, am a fan of those purple shoes. Why not? xoxo
