It's Friday, which means it's PAINT PARTY FRIDAY!!!

Happy Paint Party Friday Players!
If you don't know what Paint Party Friday is all about,
Go HERE and join in the fun.

Last week I ended my PPF post with a background that was created by wiping my paint brushes off on to a canvas board and removing the excess paint from stencils.
It turned out pretty cool so this is where my artwork for this week started:

And here is what was created from this background:

Yes it surprised me too!
I am only halfway done.
Flowers in a vase are something I never thought I would ever paint.
This painting is inspired by a YouTube video
She made it look SOOOOOO easy!

There is a lot of texture in this painting too:

Another view:

I am so excited to see how this turns out when I am done.

That's it from me today.
My neighbor came over to "help me" put on a new skirt around my house.
His idea of helping me is he is outside doing it all.
Need to see if he needs more coffee.
I am so grateful for the help. He is really a nice guy :-)
Yes, really!

Have a GREAT PPF day and a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Rasz

Rasz, what a wonderful video you have shared! I think I too will create something using that technique. I don't know where the comment I made earlier went but I will repeat that your background turned to vase of flowers was certainly a surprise. The texture and colors are awesome. Happy PPF.

Well, I'd be as surprised if one of my backgrounds should turn into flowers! Inspiration is amazing, you never know what you get!
Did you use bubble wrap to make those tiny dots, I just love bubble wrap!

A joyous Easter bouquet!

It can be so exciting with access paint and there suddenly is a background. And yours are beautiful! I never thought I would paint flowers in a vase, but I've just for some weeks "learnt it" in a work group. I as you liked it more than I thought I would.. in your piece I can also see a face where the vase is :))

Hey, Rasz. Your painting looks fabulous! I love taking wip photos and seeing where the painting started and yet ended in a completely different spot. But each of those layers contribute to the final effect, so none of it is wasted.

Great stuff!

Best wishes,

Such a beautiful painting Rasz! Love the fabulous background and pretty blossoms! The texture looks amazing! Thanks for visiting my blog and thanks for the sweet comment :) My sweet sister recently finished 12 weeks of chemo and just had a double mastectomy and reconstructive breast surgery a few days ago. Hope you and family have a wonderful weekend. Happy PPF :)
