Paint Party Friday My Birthday

Hi Everyone!

I missed all of you last week but I was out of town celebrating my birthday. Yes It is the 27th.  I had a fantastic time in McMinnville, OR. Such a wonderful place and the surrounding area was just beautiful. Found a small dairy where they made cheese. OMGosh seriously the best cheese I have ever eaten and I use to be the manager of a cheese Deli so I do know my cheeses. LOL I asked permission to take photos of the cows and fell in love with this one. We took the coast road home and had our annual birthday dinner at Tidal Raves in Deopt Bay. It was a perfect day.  
I am anxious to see what all of you have created this week. I have been working leather pieces for my exhibits and have pretty much finished these. I am going to put more feathers on the little one. These measure 14,12 and 10 inches. 




  Here is the cow she was licking the fence


And a shot outside of the restaurant. 


Thanks Eva and Kristen for hosting Paint Party Friday.
