and it's paint party friday...

Yes it's that favorite day of the week!
and that means it's
where all the creatives gather to see what each other's
WIPs or finished creations!
Click HERE for more information
and to meet the gracious hostesses
Kristin and Eva.

I picked up some very inexpensive acrylics,

along with three very small wrapped canvases
with matching little easels
and a beautiful hummingbird stamp.


I have never worked with such small canvasses.
The square one is 2"x2" and the rectangle ones are 1-1/2"x2-1/2".

BTW, I am staying at my Sissy's house this week and had to be 
VERY careful not to get messy. 

I painted the front and sides of the canvasses in a dark brown.
(These paints have no color names on the tubes)

Didn't spill a drop of paint and even had one of those puppy pads on top of my folding table just in case, which was a great idea because I did spill my coffee! 

No worries Sissy if you are reading this, the puppy pad caught every drop.

I decided the folding table on the carpet wasn't quite stable enough for my coffee, had to move the cup and made sure there was only a little water for rinsing my brushes.

I wanted the three pieces to flow together with lots of color.
Here is a better look of the beginning:

Oh, how I miss my good acrylics.
I'm hoping to have them out of storage and living in my own place soon.
So for now, I will use what I have with a big smile on my face
and gratefulness in my heart.

Happy, Happy, Happy PPF...
And have a great weekend too!

Sometimes it's fun to work small. I know when I make a small sketch I love it and then a lot of times I will redraw the image large and yuck it's not so good. I love your small canvas paintings and good for you that you ONLY spilled your coffee.

Happy Paint Party Friday!

It's a little difficult working small. I will try that soon. Those mini canvas are fun and very reasonable. There are about 20 in my studio that need to be used. I like what you are doing with the canvas.:)

Great idea to make your canvas a bit bigger by letting them flow together .... Love them. And they are TINY!

I have tried to work small. It is difficult for me but satisfying when it is finished. Great job.

This is very cool looking--such simplicity of line--yet elegant.
