Paint Party Friday....let's go for a stroll.......


Hi Everyone....and Happy Friday...

I really have no idea where the week has gone much less the last month.....Time is just flying by and I am enjoying every minute of it....It is super hard to believe that we are in August already and Summer is in full swing....I just hope this month doesn't fly by too quickly.....

I am having some super fun "me" time once and a while and I love to paint vintage ladies and place them in fun scenes....Today for PPF I am sharing my latest lady in her lovely setting....I titled this piece....
" A parasol in Paris"

I hope you enjoy it!!! and enjoy this long weekend.....

Happy Friday Everyone and Happy Creating!!!
