Paint Party Friday 5/14

It's Paint Party Friday but before I show the art, I have to tell you that over the last few months I have been catching up on medical tests. Ya know, like most of us, due to covid. Today I had my dexa scan for osteoporosis. I was diagnosed several years back. After extensive research I choose NOT to take osteo-meds. I do take a vitamin regime and bone building exercises. I am so happy to report that my determination has paid off. YAY!!!!
Now for the art.
It is sooooo windy today that the sand from the dunes has filled the air. So it was a good day to play with paint.
Just for fun nothing serious.
Using up the paint off the pallet.
Acrylics over bead medium texture 
The close up.
Playing with light and dark wash.
Stop by PPF to see all the wonderful artists who participate.
I am off to watch a movie with Mr. M. 
Wishing all of you a great Friday

Be Safe Out There And Still Wear A Mask!
Honor and integrity in art, in life.

  10. I like the texture, thanks for showing it

  11. So glad to learn about your heath. I am not a med taker, either. I love the painting. That bead medium is awesome. I bought a jar and it doesn't look anything like what you created. Guess it's the artist, not the product (grin)!

  12. Glad your medical regime has worked. Lovely textures on your artwork.

  13. Hey Nicole 🙂 Glad to read/hear you're managing to stay healthy 👍🏻

    Love all of the paintings and, honestly... can't really choose my favorite! 🤷‍♂️

  14. Good news on the bone density!!
    Those textures look fun to play with. :)

  15. Glad you are doing well ~ and fantastic art creations ~ you are so talented! Xo

  17. So glad to hear that all your hard work has paid off. Such lovely artwork. I specially love the last one.


  18. Nice textures. Have a good weekend!

  19. I have taken the meds in the past but not in some years. I'm a huge fan of diet (are you eating your 5 prunes a day?) and exercise (including yoga and weights). There's a FB group if you're interested, though I left it (cutting way back on FB groups). It's here if you are interested: A helpful supportive group focusing on exercise, not just Yoga.

  20. yay for the good medical report 😀

  21. Congrats on the good medical news!! So happy for you!! I love how you experiment with your art! Big Hugs!

  22. Congrats on the good news. Your paintings are wonderful. I love the texture and colors. Happy PPF and thank you for visiting my blog.

  23. Pleased that your tests went well.
    Lovely painting.

    All the best Jan
