Friday, October 21st 2011

This week just flew by!  I can hardly believe it's time for Paint Party Friday!  So what am I painting, yikes, nothing the last few days.  My hubby just got home from a long trip in Brazil and I've been enjoying my precious free minutes with him.  I will share something done recently because it's a bit of a departure from my own style.  I was participating in a postcard swap in the style of Tracy Moore, his style is edgy, and really fun, a combination of journaling and sketching at the same time.  So here are the two that I created with my interpretation of his style. They were both done with Charcoal and Watercolor.

Wave Warrior

Thanks for the Mammeries
Thanks so much for visiting!  If you want to see what other artist are painting the hop on over to the fabulous Kristin and Eva's Paint Party Friday for a list!

and my own little plug, if you are looking to do a little blog hopping on Thursdays come by and see me for my new blog hop theme "Food For Thought Thursdays
