Oh Happy Paint Party Friday!

Good Afternoon PPF Partiers!
Hope everyone is doing great today,
Thank you Eva and Kristin for being
the hostesses with the most-est.
If you want to know what Paint Party Friday is
go HERE!

I've been gone a while recouping from surgery.
Mostly laying in a recliner most of the time,
and doing a little art from there too.
I'm going to apologize in advance for the upcoming pictures.
It's overcast and rainy and the house lighting
isn't the best for taking pictures.

First, Look what Tracy from tracywoodsford.blogspot.com
sent me to cheer me up:

She also included three Derwent colored pencils that I forgot to take a photo of because they are already with my other pencils and being used!
Awesome colored pencils!
In the picture above you can see five amazing papers too,
I think they are too pretty to use.

Here's a breakdown:
Tracy's beautiful artwork that I can't wait to frame and hang up.
It says "If You Have Wings...Fly". It's so prettier than a picture of it.

Tracy made this beautiful card.
It says "Sometimes You Just Need To Play" 

A Beautiful Handmade Stamp and part of her cute
business card.

My brother-in-law to be bought me a set of Faber-Castell Graphite Pencils.
I used them for the first time last night to get an idea of what I can do with more than just one graphite pencils, hehe!

And a couple of days ago I watched a YouTube video
from Maremi SmallArt called "Toilet Paper Rolls Dandelion 
Painting Technique for Beginners"
It's a great video and Maremi is so cute!
Here is what I created after watching the video:

It was so much fun painting this with Blick Studio Acrylic Paints,
which I am in love with! The colors are bright and fun!
It was painted on an 8"x10" Canson Canva Art Board,
which come in a pad of 10. Another new favorite!

I have an Instagram account I post in almost every day:
Stop by and visit and I will do the same.
Every post also goes to my Facebook Art Page:
Rasz Art Designs

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a Fantastic Paint Party Friday,
and a Wonderful Weekend.
Hugs, Rasz

Oh I do hope you're feeling better and recovering nicely from the surgery! Beautiful art from your friend...and of course the dandelion art is beautiful too!! So sweet of your brother in law to be, to get those pencils. I try water with every pencil and find some are so awesome even if it doesn't say so!! I love the canson books for mixed media too...they take acrylics really nicely!! Take care!!
