Paint Party Friday....inspired by my favorite window in NYC 2012....









Hi Everyone....

hope you are all having wonderful weeks filled with all of your favorite people and places and fun...I just spent the last 10 hours baking all kinds of yummy treats for Christmas....I will have to post some photos of all the treats I made .....

I always get super inspired when I go to NYC in December to see all of the windows and Holidays inspired decorations...especially at Bergdorf Goodman.....and this inspiration always brings out some new work that will always be a lasting memory for me....

This window all in white with the amazing textures and tones and highlights screamed to me!!! and I could have stood outside this window for ages....I am all about colour in my work....but something about all white just makes me happy....love this window....and had to create a painting as inspired by this window....I decided to pick some colours to pop the piece....so I went with purples and aquas.....oh and some metallic gold too.....oh and who doesn't love a red lip!!!

Hope you like it....and enjoy my photos!!!

Happy PPF and Happy Creating Everyone!!!
