Paint Party Friday....10 Minute Sketch turns into this gorgeous Parisian Zinnia....Happiness!


Hi Everyone...Happy Friday.....this weekend is huge for me and I hope with all my heart something amazing happens for me!!! I will fill you all in once I know more....but this weekend with either make or break me!!!

Today I am sharing a Parisian Zinnia piece in ink and watercolour....I love these flowers....they remind me so much of my Mom and how she used to have tons of these amazing blooms in rows all along her vegetable garden....She always brought me some seeds and once I moved into our own place...I grew these in my vegetable garden every single year....except this year...and I am so missing these!!!

I love these also because they last forever and a day in a vase....next year for sure!!

I also want to personally invite you all to come by here during the week and participate in 10 Minute Warm ups....



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.....

Hello Diana! Your zinnia is really very beautiful. I like how color is changing colder on the right and back. It is wonderful color.

Thank You tempting us to relax and paint. I am coming back :-)

Diana, your zinnias are gorgeous. Seeing your painting made me remember the beautiful flowers my grandmother used to grow. Love how you used the ink as well as the paint.

beautiful, and I love the use of shade and light, it looks real. I took up your challenge and got out my pencils and sketch books, but only managed to "play" one morning this week. but it was fun.
