Paint Party Friday- Thanks Eva and Kristin!!!

Happy Friday!  I am so excited to share that I was chosen to be the featured artist this week at Paint Party Friday!!  It's been such an amazing group of people full of of inspiration and fun and now they are featuring an artist each week- FUN! 
So, Thank you Eva and Kristin- you guys have made Fridays
 such a wonderful day to look forward to- thanks!!!
Anyway, after I finished the portrait I had just enough time to do final touch ups on my Angel in the Garden painting; now re-named as "Angel Amongst the Pansies"  I put this aside close to a month ago to do some work on my Inspiration Avenue Round Robin and then the portrait.  Anyway; here's how it turned out;
  I was glad to get it finished and listed in my Etsy Shop- one of my goals this month is to become an active Etsian once more!  So I've been "cleaning shop" and put all of my old note cards on clearance and upgraded to 5"x7" Strathmore Greeting cards. 
 I love these because they are bigger than my old cards and I can attach separate prints and sign and title them, which is something I've been wanting to do for awhile.  I also began sketching out a new painting from based on my photos from the garden tours from last week....I'll share more on that later!
For now, Happy Paint Party Friday!
xx
Stephanie

I just happened to be online to share my IA entry this week, then saw your PPF post. Congratulations on being named the featured artist this week. You deserve it. Besides, you have played along for as long as I can remember.

You have been super productive this week. First, you finished your portrait, and now the angel in the pansies. Happy Friday and weekend, too.

Stephanie, I just wanted to say that I read all your posts, even if sometimes I do not comment, please know I'm reading as I'm always keen to see what you get up too. You are an incredible artist, your colour palette is beautiful and unique and your subject matter is charming. It's great to see a few new pieces in your etsy store too. You know I just adore this angel piece, the finishing touches are just perfect, I'm waiting in anticipation to see it in the flesh. Also, I can't wait to see what you do with all the photos you've been taking of your garden. Fantastic PPF interview btw. Enjoy your weekend and happy creating. Xx

Thank YOU for being our Featured Artist on PPF this week. I LOVE that you made your Moon painting into the PPF painting - it may be my very favourite of your work (I LOVE the Moon!) Your baby feet were incredible too.

Your angel and those pansies are beautiful. Can't wait to see what else your garden tour has inspired.
