First off, I want to thank everyone who has sent me
prayers & healing thoughts my way.
I know all of your good wishes have contributed
to my recovery, and my heart!
Well this is my 2nd PPF post in a row and I am hoping
to be back on track with posting and visiting!
Thank you to our wonderful hostesses
EVA and Kristin! You guys ROCK!!!
Not sure what Paint Party Friday is?
Go HERE and learn all about it,
then join in on the fun.
I have been into birch trees lately.
I just finished one painting yesterday!
It feels so good to paint.
And of course I do paint things a bit differently.
That's just me.
There is lots of texture on the trees, from the collage of paper
underneath. The background is painted on top of the collage base.
I left the background with a matte finish.
I was really happy how this turned out.
You can click on this mixed-media painting
and get a closer look if you like.
Wednesday night and yesterday brought some hard rains,
hail and strong winds.
I always like to check on my hummingbird friends.
It's amazing how these little tiny beauties
can make it through the cold and storms.
Here they are yesterday fighting over their place on the feeder.
It was raining and if you look close you can see raindrops
on those cute long beaks.

And here they are once the little altercation was over:

It was raining pretty hard when I took this picture,
Their feathers were wet & mostly females and youngsters
in this picture so not a lot of colors.
That's it for me today.

Happy Paint Party Friday
