Paint Party Friday


A warm welcome to all of my Paint Party Friday Friends!

I'm late to the party since we have been under huge ice and snow storms and I've been without internet all night last night. Fortunately the power stayed on and the internet and cable were back on this morning so I could consort with you all!  I had to do a bit of a rehash of my Wednesday post but thought you still might like to see what I'm working on this week.

What's happening in the studio this week?  Well Valentines of course.  One is a matted ACEO called "Love Letter" and the other is a Mixed Media piece 7 1/2 by 8 1/2" called "Landscape of my Heart" A grungy moonscape of a valentine for the "NOT" everyday gal and Love Letter a matted ACEO for the more traditional gal who is also a collector.
