Happy Paint Party Friday and Happy Canada Day!

Good afternoon on this lovely, warm, sunny
Paint Party Friday!
Thank you as always Kristin and EVA for another fun-filled,
worldwide, creative Blog Hop!
Haven't a clue what this is about?
Click HERE.

I just realized my Blog needs a complete makeover.
Dark and rainy is not too happy or uplifting.
Hopefully there will be something bright and cheery
with all my Social Media Accounts listed
by next Friday. Oh Deja Vu!
Wish me luck or please send inspirational thoughts.

On the last post there was a paper grocery sack with drawings,
cut out drawings from the bag, a collage of brown paper 
covering an 8"x8" wrapped canvas AND
a couple layouts for consideration.
Thank you to all who gave their preference.

After a couple unsuccessful tries, 
a Southwestern piece was completed:

A couple friends asked if there were bows on top of the cactus?
No, not bows, it is suppose to be little cacti flowers.
I thought about making them a different color or more flower-like
looking...no, it stayed as is.
It's hard to see in this picture however there is a lot of 
layers and depth. I like it. This was so fun
and a great project for anyone of any age. Easy-peasy creating.
At least my muse has returned and creation is flowing.

Next I found a watercolor painting from a few weeks back.
I got stuck and put it into the re-do pile.
It is now a got-done piece that justs says
"Happy", so that is the name of this one!

Another watercolor and ink. Seems like a pink/purple flower theme lately:

And my current WIP sitting on the painting table,
with more pinks and purples:

I think both need some ink for definition and pop!
The one on the left will be framed and the thin piece on the right
will be a bookmark. I like the idea of offering framed paintings
with matching bookmarks. What do you think?

I had so much fun blending the three watercolors 
used for this piece. 

That is it for me this week!
I sure did post late. I will probably be visiting everyone
over the weekend.

Have a Wonderful Week and to my Canadian friends,
Happy Canada Day Sunday!
Hugz, Rasz

Hi Rasz, I'd been away from blogging for a while so am just catching up.
Love your post and I keep cacti and really loved that pot of them you painted.
Hope all's going well for you and see you when you return. Cheers, Sue :D)
