Paint Party Friday....working on something special....and my 10 Minute Warm up.....


Hi Everyone....Happy Friday....I am a little busy bees these days....working and vacationing and working and vacationing.....I am having a wonderful Summer...but this heat is really getting to be a little bit of a pain....The only way you can enjoy it is if you are in water...so one must do what one must do to stay cool....so we have been at the cottage and at the beach a lot....

today we hit a high of 99 degrees!!! can you believe it....



I am working away on a super special piece for a Fall Wedding and I am making sure that everything is perfection and it is taking me forever to make things just right!!! Wish me luck!!! so I am sharing some sunflowers that I have worked on....for this week's PPF submission....

I hope it brings you all a smile...I also thought I would share some amazing sunsets....since everything is sunny here today....







I am fascinated by each and every sunset!!! like paintings by God himself....pure beauty and a sense of peace....

also sharing this as my 10 Minute Warm up for today....and I do hope you all will join me!!!



10 Minute Warm Up is about taking 10 minutes of your day to breathe, relax, open up your mind to possibilities and then create something....you can be inspired to sketch your coffee cup....something on your desk....your table....anything....try it....it is a great way to start the day....then pop back here and share it so we can all see and be inspired by each other!!! I have a linkie thing here so you can add your work any day of the week ....Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and....Sunday....so join me!!! won't you!

Happy Friday Everyone....and Happy Creating.....

Your art always inspires me. As for the heat wave at your house. Come visit me. My heater has been clicking on for the last few days. It is cold here.
Happy PPF

I love sunflowers!!! This flower pattern you made is so beautiful!
The photos are beautiful too... all of them nice, but I think the first one is my favorite, just because I like leaves :oD

The sunflowers would look beautiful on patterned paper of fabric. Enjoy your vacation, stay cool, and best wishes on your wedding project. Blessings!

Your sunflowers are gorgeous, love the colours. Sunsets would have to be one of the most beautiful things in nature and yours are spectacular.

Sunflowers always make me smile and your field of them is just lovely. Those sunsets are indeed spectacular and God is the ultimate Creator - we only get to create because we are made in his image. Stay cool and enjoy the water.

LOVE those sunflowers! Sorry about the heat. What a weird year...we've had below normal temps this week and buckets of rain. Your sunset photos are just beautiful. So inspiring!

Karen Smithey said...

Such lovely sunsets! It's been hot hot hot here, too--I jump in the pool every night before bed for a cool down and it's a real lifesaver!

I'm going to have to try your 10-minute warm up. I need something to jump start me in more ways than one...

Alexandra said...

Ouch, my 89 has a feels like (here in the south) of 98. . . .I love to take pictures on my other blog http://jkwgalleries.blogspot.com and then I paint them for the Art (PPF) blog. It is fun, exasperating and good practice with different art works. Blessings, Janet PPF
