Paint Party Friday April 26th

In a flurry this week but I've planned some time to get around and visit my Paint Party Friday friends.


Here is my most recent hand torn paper pet portrait "Jack"  the client wished for him to be in the Pop Art style.  He was memorial for her sweetheart.  Jack passed while he was away serving his country and was a large piece of his heart.   They received the piece and this is the message I received today....It made me tear up!  

From the Gift Recipient:

Thank you so much for Jack! I think you captured his soul. 


and from the client:

He cried when he saw your portrait of Jack.

These are the moments that artist live for IMHO.


Thanks for Stopping by for Paint Party Friday!  Can't wait to see what you're up to.
