Paint Party Friday

Friday once again!
When I worked 9 to 5 in my little cubicle, I looked forward to Fridays.
I'm no longer punching the clock (at least for now)
but there's a new reason to love Fridays.
Paint Party Friday of course!

My sunflower was going to be for Inspiration Avenue's
"Sun Kissed" theme, but now I have another idea for that.
It involves something I started a long time ago,
and I'm hoping to have time to finish it before Sunday.

The sunflower needs some more work.
I'm not really happy with it.
It's acrylic paint on bristol board...
I think I can add a bit more paint
without the paper breaking down.

Visit Kristin's and Eva's
 to see some amazing art of every description!
