PAINT PARTY FRIDAY DEC. 1

 Hi Everyone!

I can't tell you how busy I have been the last two weeks. Company for the holidays, work, and what ever else invades my day. LOL I hope all of you had a very nice TG. I think a lot of you are feeling the same as me when I realize this is Dec. 1 and the last month of the year. Where did it go? For me I am glad it is almost over. Not a very good year for us but we are still standing and hoping for better days. Soooooo with all that has been going on I did manage to get a few pieces of art completed.

I actually have a hat very similar to this that I bought when I was in Japan. So I am guessing that is where this came from. LOL. I am happy with this piece. Don't have a name for it.

Click on photos to see better. 




This really did morph from something totally different. Every piece of art is a learning experience.
 

This painting changed a few times but now I am liking it. I am very happy with the colors and the glow of it. 
 

A big thanks to Kristen and Eva for hosting Paint Party Friday. Be sure to stop in to see all the very creative people joining the party. Paint Party Friday

  5. oh yes, where did it go indeed! It hasn't been a very good year for the world in fact, the expression of the girl in the second picture says it all... let's just hope 2017 will be better... The colours and dreamlike atmosphere in that painting are just beautiful ....

  8. You are so versatile and your creations take me in many directions. I am a raptor lover so your first picture drew me right in ... though I have to say that in my experience, I am not sure I would want my face so close to that beak. I love the faces you create, they seem to ooze personality which is not easy to do. Your painting is so calming ... we all need some calming these days and the colors and the nature in this painting takes me away from all that I dread in my daily life. It would be a great picture to have around the house ... on the wall, of course. Lovely post and I too hope next year is better, but I have my doubts on some levels :)
