Paint Party Friday 11/2

Hi Everyone!

I wrote this earlier today and in the mean time I have some great news. I have been asked to join the art committee for our Library. This is a big deal and I feel honored that I was asked. Oh I said, "Yes" 

Wow! I can't believe how busy I am. As of today I have my art showing in 4 different venues. I feel pretty blessed with that. Tonight hubby and I will go to The After Hours Block party at BeauxArts here in Florence. It is so much fun. 
If you are in town come join in.
2285 HWY 101 in the Coastal Fitness  Plaza.

Now here are some pieces for this week.
I did some watercolor inktense pencils on her sweater. 

His face just made me feel like he was a gentle man.

 I wasn't trying for a self portrait of my youth, however
I see the features in this one are mine. 
Especially the nose.

These two pieces are actually going to a friend of mine and her daughter who live in Eugene.

 Thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting Paint Party Friday.

A last word, don't forget to VOTE!

Honor and integrity in art, in life.
