paint party time


My dual paintings that turned out pretty well after the third try! Who says you can't
 paint over mistakes! I decided to go for bright and bold on colors and let loose. Flowers, birds, butterflies are my favs to paint . You can see peeking through my "mistakes from previous pic" the orange, light blues... I am taking a class right now and will keep you posted how it goes. It has many new elements.....etching, clay, patinas etc so fun!!! I was in a creative block so I hope this helps me go at it again. Happy spring!!!
