Paint Party Friday.....Pretty in Paris.....




Hi Everyone...

I seriously have no idea where the week went.....but it was an amazing week and we have been enjoying all of our favorite activities in this wonderful weather....so I hope the whole summer slows down a bit so we can take it all in.....In case you missed seeing my sweet Vegetable Garden you can head to this post....We are so proud of it every year!!!

Today I am sharing this new Paris inspired vintage painting with all of you and my super talented friends over at Paint Party Friday.........I was feeling a little longing for Paris this week so I did what every artist does....head there in my work....and in my imagination....

Wishing you all an amazing weekend......

Happy Friday Everyone....and Happy Creating!

I have shocking garden envy happening here... it looks amazing and I am going to show Sinus when he gets home and try to shame him into making us a beautiful one as well... and the painting is wonderful... I can tell how much you are enjoying your vintage ladies... it is shining through in every perfect pencil stroke...xx

This is wonderful I love the palette you chose and the way your outline around the Eiffel Tower is repeated in the branches of the trees- and of course, your vintage lady is gorgeous!
