Paint Party Friday Friday June 29th


A great big hello to my Paint Party Friday Friends.  Thanks for stopping by to share my art this week!

I'm so excited my Mommy is coming to visit from Michigan tomorrow.  I can't wait to see her.

My proud accomplishment of the week was completing the Chigirie (Torn Paper) Pop Art Pet Portrait commission that I've been working on for weeks.  My client squealed with delight and superlatives, there is such an amazing sense of satisfaction when a commission goes over so well.  You always hope your vision and your clients will meet in a happy place.  This particular client was so fantastic because she completely abdicated the project to my discretion, a truly joyful experience.

Anyway here is Zoe:



I've been fortunate to have a steady stream of commissions and have another waiting in the wings, this is Henry.


Doesn't he have the most delightful face? My new client also wants the Pop art style.  I'm looking forward to working on it but today I'm taking the day off and maybe tomorrow too as I like just a bit of time to clear my head between each piece that I create.


As always a very special thanks to our host Kristin and Eva at Paint Party Friday for organizing this fabulous peek into each others lives.
