Today is a GREAT day!
Today is Paint Party Friday,
hosted by the amazing, creative, wonderful
duo of Kristin and Eva!
Paint Party Friday is a day to go visit creatives
from around the world,
and see what they are creating.
I have been BLIA (blogger lost in action)
for probably a couple weeks now.
Even though the change in weather and my body
have slowed me down, I have done a couple canvases.
The one on the left is finished and the 8x8 on the right
is still a WIP.
Loving the colors...I feel Autumn's here.
I am loving painting smaller canvases.
Lately all I had were big,
and I ran out.
Somehow, my beautiful, wonderful, caring, inspiring
Crow Friend sent me a package.
Yes that would be Stacy from MagicLoveCrow.
Look at this stack of 8x10s and 8x8s:
Along with "Dancer", one of her famous Crow ACEOs,
to add to my collection.
I feel so blessed...I AM so blessed!
Thank you, thank you my beautiful Crow Friend!
Chronic pain, especially with the weather change here,
may keep me down but will not stop me from painting,
even if it's a couple minutes at a time.
Here is the latest finished mixed media artwork:
This painting was done with layers and layers of paper
and color from old paper towels.
The colors on the finished layer was created by
Tim Holtz Distress Spray Inks and Tim Holtz
So much fun to play with and great colors too.
The top paper layer was also Tim Holtz.
The finish feels like leather.
It really came out great!
So it's been a wonderful, inspiring couple weeks!
And with the gift of the canvases....
well, two down and twelve to go!
I uncommitted on Inktober.
I tried and just wasn't able to do it.
I have to be more honest with what I am able to do.
Making commitments isn't really fair
to the ones I make commitments to
and to myself, as I end up pushing myself,
causing more pain and inciting more flare-ups,
then feeling terrible for not holding up my part
of the deal.
Have you ever felt this way?
Happy Paint Party Friday!
Hope to hop over to your blog.
I will be visiting today (Friday)
through the weekend.
