It's Paint Party Friday, the BEST day of the week!

Happy PPF!
I am so glad to be here today.
Thank you Eva and Kristin for being
The Hostess's with the Mostest's.
(yes that is now a real word since I just used it again)

Don't know what Paint Party Friday is?
Curious to find out?
Want to meet Eva and Kristin?
Simply go HERE for it all!

Today's piece is an 8"x8" mixed media painting:

The photos were taken by philnavarrophotography.com

I was gifted heavy duty wrapped canvases in 8"x8" and 8"x12".
I love the sizes and it was a real surprise getting these in the mail!
I found that the 8x8's look great on a table easel (?) stand like the 1st picture shown here.
Great for people who have no wall space or not allowed to hang anything on the walls because of rental agreements.

Oh, about the painting.
This was done almost entirely using Ranger's

I have enjoyed using dark, rich colors in my work now.
I am learning that I have to be careful of not going too dark.
It may look great on my art table, altho' trying to get a good picture
can be challenging.

I have joined up again for 29Faces of February Challenge,
hosted by Martha over at Ayala Art.
It's not too late to join in,

I am posting every day on my Instagram rasz_art_designs,
and on my Facebook art page Rasz Art Designs.
Blog posting every few days.

Wasn't planning on writing such a long post.
Thank you for dropping  by and I will do the same.

Happy Paint Party Friday and have a great weekend!
Messy, Painty Hugz, Rasz

Oh, I almost forgot to share my most exciting news!
I finally have my own website and it went live this week.
It has been a dream in the making for 5 years now
and I had been hoping to go live by last Thanksgiving I think.
My site is slowly being loaded with art,
I just need more energy and I am finding it is getting
harder and harder to use my laptop or any device.
I cannot let that stop me completely for this is MY dream!
Thank you for all the support during this time.

Your mixed media pieces have always held a special place in my heart. You put so much into the dance between words, colors and textures. There is always a story in them... many times, more than one story.

P.S. Love your new website.
