Paint Party Friday....Fall Fair Inspirations.....



Piece I titled....."A Fair to remember"

















Hi Everyone....what a wonderful way to end the week.....we just spent the evening at the kick off night of our Fall Fair and it was so much fun to see all of the colour and fun in the eyes of all the children....It brings back so many memories for me as a child too....the rides....the scents of food....the sounds and the excitement....

So today I thought it would be fitting to share a little Fair inspired art with you all and a whole bunch of inspirational photos I took....I think these will help inspire more fun artwork in the weeks to come...all about Autumn and Fairs and the things that bring us happiness this time of year......

Happy Paint Party Friday Everyone.... and Happy Creating!!!

I love your illustration - the way the edges almost look stitched is lovely - like it's made up of pieces of material!
Your photos are wonderful - you've totally captured the fun of the fair - it looks like such good fun and I'm sure you're wee boy had a ball!

Love your painting Diana and how you've edged everything with blanket stitch, most effective. Enjoy the weekend, happy PPF, Annette x
