Paint Party Friday and a dedication to...

Hello World!
Once again it is my favorite day of the week, Friday.
That is as long as Paint Party Friday is still partying!
Thank you to our wonderful hosts, EVA and Kristin
for making Fridays such a special day for all us
Paint Party Friday Partiers and Players!

Have no idea what  I am talking about?
Go HERE, it will be worth it, I promise!

Today's post is dedicated to my
Crow Spirit Sister!
When you think of Crow's in the Art World,
most often her name is what comes to mind.
Yes, it's Stacy at MagicLoveCrow!
(if you haven't visited her lately, she has some great new art)

The reason I am dedicating this post to her is that several months or so ago she sent me a boxful of 8"x8" and 8"x10" reinforced, heavy duty, wrapped canvases!
She asked me the other day about them and I realized since my surgery, I have been posting most of my art on my Instagram (rasz_art_designs) and my Facebook Art Page (Rasz Art Designs) accounts So Stacy hasn't seen the art I have made from those canvases. So, time for me to stop typing and just show the art I have made on those treasured canvases:


This one came out blurry from having to gather all the photos from 3 devices to my computer.
It took me 2 hours and I opted to post the blurry one instead of trying to go through everything for another pic.
So, Stacy...here are 8 of the canvases. I have 2 more 8"x10" WIPs and a couple more canvases still in the wrapper. These Mixed-Media painting would never have been created without your gracious gifts and continued support and encouragement! I am SO blessed to have you, and your mom, in my life.

Below is an orange hummingbird that migrates each year
and has come back home in Spring for the last 2 years!
I am waiting for orange babies, maybe this year.

Happy PPF, Cinqo de Mayo and have a GREAT week!
Hugz, Rasz

Oh Rasz, each one of your canvases are wonderful... so rich and deeply luscious with texture and they evoke such feeling. I'm sure Tracy will be so delighted when she sees how you've used her lovely gift. Cheers and Happy PPF!

Eight canvasses is a huge gift and you made gorgeous art of them, Rasz. The colors and designs are beautiful and bright. Your hummer is probably a male with all that color. We don't have any that have that sort of markings. It is really pretty. Maybe there will be orange babies flying around there. I hope so.

Robin!! Love you my friend! Thank you for sharing all your amazing art! You are so talented!!! You build such depth in your art! I love it!! I am so happy the canvases have came into good use! I knew you would cherish them and create beautiful art with them!!
Happy Dance!
(I am really behind with blogging and e-mails! Sorry! Oh, if I can get the painting out of the garbage, I will mail it to you! I did try to save it, but I really didn't like it! I will see what I can do!)
Big Hugs! and Thanks again!!!

Magic Love Crow said...

These are super pieces of art. I love the texture in that first one and all the colours you've used are so vibrant. Great work.

Wow, the colours and the textures are amazing! I especially love the tree trunk-paintings. So beautiful... And how sweet of Stacy to send you these canvases! I'm sure she can appreciate what you have done with them! Have a lovely week xxx

That was so nice of Stacy. She has a heart of gold. Your are amazing too with these wonderful pieces of art. I have seen some of these on FB. I don't have instagram because you can't have an account on a PC. So I am very happy that you shared these here. Hugs

You are the queen of textures and colors that pop into life. They are alive!

What a great gift, and what a wonderful treasure you have made of them.
