Paint Party Friday!!!

In my blog travels this week, I discovered that many of my friends are joining in on Paint Party Friday and now, so am I!  Here's what Eva and Kristin had to say about it, "Acrylics, Oils, Watercolors or Mixed Media Big Works or Small Pieces Finished Paintings or Works In Progress All Painting Accomplishments are Reason to Celebrate!
Please join us for a Paint Party...A Place to Check-In, Meet and Chat with Other Painters and Have Some Fun!"  Sounds like my kind of place!
Since I never posted the finished product of my "La Femme" I've chosen to share her at the party.
For more pictures and information, check her out in my Etsy shop.
Happy Friday and hope to see you at the partay!
Stephanie

Gumnut said...

This painting is gripping. I like your style in this, particularly the brushwork in the hand. Very interesting composition too.

You mentioned on my blog that you painted flowers. Well, you should rephrase that to...you paint STUNNING flowers. My efforts are blobs of paint next to yours. You have my admiration. Thanks so much for pointing me in your direction.
