it's paint party friday and i am finally back...

What a great day!
I am back out posting AND
It's Paint Party Friday!

Not sure what that is?
Go HERE to learn all about the fun!

I haven't done much painting lately,
mainly I have been focusing on ink and pencil ACEOs.

But when I saw  Guada's Art Place and her beautiful mandalas.
I thought I would try painting one on my own. Here is the beginning:

Getting ready to paint with my NEW traveling art table,
watercolors and coffee:

Hmmm...everything looks good in this picture except my coffee!
Tilt, strange?
I found the Inspire dish at the checkout lane at Michaels.
I need inspiration right now so it was a good dollar item.
I wonder how much money I have spent all these years on the items I pick up while waiting to check out at Michaels.
Great marketing, isn't it?

Back to painting...

Here is the beginning in watercolor.
Now that I have a better internet connection, I am going to watch the videos over at 

Have a Fantastic Paint Party Friday
and a great weekend!
