Paint Party Friday May 10th

Hello to all of my Paint Party Friday Friends!   Oh How I've missed PPF!   I've been on a forced hiatus as I was diagnosed with a bad case of eye strain and it seems my screen time was the culprit.   It caused some crazy vertigo but I am back in ship shape working order and I've missed sharing with you  and visiting all of your fabulous works of art!

Here is what I've been working on this week, a torn paper portrait commission of Tootsie Roll.  She is a graduation present from a Grandma to her Granddaughter.

Torn Paper Tootsie Roll

I distressed and painted a cradled birch frame in the colors of an old barn.  I've just taped her to it at the moment to get a general idea of how she'll look before I adhere her and add the finishing touches.





While waiting for layers of Tootsie Roll to dry one afternoon I painted this abstract acrylic on canvas 9 X 12 Wild Horses at Sunset for my Etsy shop inventory

Thanks for visiting me for Paint Party Friday!  I'm looking forward to seeing what you've been up to!  Thank you to the always fabulous Kristen and Eva for hosting my favorite blog hop Paint Party Friday.
