Paint Party Friday is on!

First I would like to send my heartfelt condolences to all those effected by the
recent, insane violence that is rocking our world.
My thoughts and prayers out to everyone,
our Country and our World.
This has to end.

Today, I finally got a couple pictures edited for today's
I used PicMonkey which is easy editing
however it is an online program
and can only edit one picture uploaded at a time.
So it has taken me several hours to just
get a few photos done.
Going to look for another one to try that is downloadable.

I think this is where I left off two Friday's ago.

Beginning of the painting. Not very pretty.
Why do I keep painting flowers in vases? Why oh why?

All is not lost, adding texture and putting my glasses on
can make for some great changes!
(I realized putting my glasses on while editing makes a huge difference)
This photo is actually blurry, it just has yummy textures.

I found a jar of Golden's Self Leveling Clear Gel
I didn't know I had and never used it.
I tried it out on this painting and it is the BEST
texture-y, shining, awesome stuff!
Simply amazing!

Here is the painting "Bouquet of My Heart" almost done.

It's not a good photo, I just couldn't try to find another
picture to use. Going back and forth from one picture at a time
onto Pic Monkey was just too time consuming
and my right arm and hand are done for the day.

Next Friday I will share this mixed media painting completed 
along with at least one more.
I will also be using another photo editor.
One that is downloadable and easy to use.

Have a Perfect Paint Party Friday
and a
Wonderful Week!

Hugs, Rasz

What a lovely piece. And I love that you describe the different steps you are taking.
I had to smile at 'putting on my glasses' - hah - it sure does help, I know :)
