Paint Party Friday: Week 3, Year 3 Check-In

Welcome to Week 3, Year 3 of Paint Party Friday! Thanks so much for all your input last week about whether Year 3 needs a "theme". We have decided to go ahead with the idea of showing one of the submitted paintings, based on a random number generator. If anyone still wants to submit an interview though, we would love to hear your story! So we will also continue to run interviews as we receive them. (But will stop begging for submissions - haha!)

Last week there were 101 partyers! Wow! For the first PPF Painting Spotlight, the random.org number generator gave us #44 - Victoria Pettella! Below is one of her wonderful spiritual paintings from her post last week:

As always, please make sure to use your post URL address NOT your blog home page URL address as there are many late visitors who get confused as to which post is for PPF when they arrive (after Friday) at your website. If you are unfamiliar with Mr. Linky, an explanation of how this tool works can be found on Week 1 and Week 2 Check-Ins.
Have a Happy Easter weekend if you celebrate, and a fun and creative week!

    1. Hi Victoria
      It was a random draw but when we saw it was your post, we were absolutely thrilled. We'd always hoped you would submit an interview and tell us more about yourself and the story of your art journey. You are so wonderful about participating in PPF, visiting and commenting that we hope everyone is familiar with your art but just in case... we are very happy we got to show a piece off!
