Paint Party Friday Six years of blogging!

Six years of blogging today!
It's been just shy of three months since my last post and my longest break in six years! Today is also Paint party Friday! What better day to share a few creative attempts from the last few months!! Also participating in the Butterfly affect!

Here I have done a couple of small acrylics on cradle boards.
 The colors really speak to me!


 I've been quietly creative. I revamped a painting that sat above my bathtub and drove me crazy! Now it drives my daughter crazy, all because one pair of shoes doesn't match the headdress!  It's called "Squeezed out,"  Maybe one of the characters is squeezed out for not having the right shoes!!! You can see the former painting here!
                                                                                                                          


 

I made myself a new travel mug by photographing  my painting
magical flowers, shrinking it down  and re-patterning it!
You can see the original painting here!
This is my latest project! A  thick cradle board  prepped for painting on!
Not a very meaty post....give me time, I'll get back into it!!

All great work, especially Squeezed Out. I love the ladies' tribal look. And congrats on six years of blogging! That's a big deal, especially when you consider that so many people get burned out.

I'm so late getting here but Happy Blog Anniversary...and it's good to see you back in Blogland.

LOVE the flower paintings, and the "Squeezed Out" painting is so cute. I didn't even notice that the shoes didn't match until you mentioned it.

HAPPY SIX YEARS! I love all your new work but "Squeezed Out" is my absolute favorite. Did you notice while you were visiting me that we've been using the same palette lately? Great minds..... It is always SO good to hear from you, and, because we've been blog buddies since I started painting 4 years ago, I especially value your input. Happy Spring! Love,Kathy
