Paint Party Friday

Hey Happy Campers it's another fabulous Paint Party Friday with the ever delightful Eva and Kristen.

What's Paint Party Friday you ask?  Well it's an opportunity to see what all of your artist friends new and old are creating and posting on their blogs to share with you.  So where do you add your link up or find this list of fantabulous artist?  Well here you go, a link, to find your way to all of the eye candy  PAINT PARTY FRIDAY!

Time  has been whooshing by for me lately and I've been busy, but the kind of busy that makes me happy and fills me with joi de vivre !  I've had 3 torn pet painting portrait commissions come in this week and the first of them is Brewski, isn't that a fabulous name for this pooch!  




 I've finished the torn paper portrait part and I'll be spending today working on his canvas.  The client has asked for black with no words.  I have to admit I have a hard time doing plain black so I'm going to sneak in some undertones of midnight blues and purples and hope she likes it!  I won't attach him until I get her approval because ultimately it's for her and I like to make sure my wonderful clients are happy, happy, happy!  After all they are putting food on my table so to speak.  

Whose next, why his sister Babe of course (two sisters own these dogs and their Aunt commissioned me to do one for each of them for Xmas.). You won't get to see her till the Friday after next though because I won't be posting over the Thanksgiving Holiday next Friday.


I can't thank you enough for stopping by!  Your comments have delighted and inspired me!  I'm very sorry to those of you I didn't make it to visit last week. I only made it through 1/2 the list before it was Friday again!  Never fear though,  you are first on my list this week and I'm determined to make it through to see everyone this week!  HUGS 

 I love my followers I hope you'll become one!  

I'm planning  a very special prize giveaway for one of my followers to celebrate my Birthday,  on December 23rd

As I do not like to use the authentic black, the mixture gives you more personality, I'm sure you'll like it looks great. Saludos

Brewski is full of personality and so is your work. It´s amazing how you can match the colours so smoothly.
Just today I posted about posting on PPFers blogs. When time is tight I play with numbers (like all finished with the same number as the date and such)

What a charmer Brewski is! Especially as you have painted him! I think the undertones are a great idea. Looking forward to seeing more!

Robin, your work with the torn paper portraits is just fantastic. I love the special touches you add for your clients. I think she will think the background with just a tiny bit of blue or purple is just beautiful.
