Hello Paint Party Friday friends. Well the big day is almost here and I will be taking some time off for my Christmas preparations and celebrations. I have a cute palette knife snowman today. He is in oil on a 10"H x 8"W stretched canvas. He is wistful because he thought we were going to get a really nice snow of 6" for the Christmas week. But alas we only got about 1/2" and all the rain froze instead! I know I should be happy, but when you live in Chicago, snow is welcomed for the holidays(by most) and ice is much more treacherous. I really got a lot of art done this week and posted on the 17th all about working on some Artist Trading Cards, my journal page for Fall Fearless & Fly, and my new stencils from Stencil Girl some designed by Jessica Sporn and making my tangled designs into coasters for gifts for friends. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and wonderful holidays for everyone.
