Paint Party Friday: Week 6, Year 5 Check-In

Welcome to Week 6 of Year 5 here at PPF!

Random.org this week chose #42 - Anthony Billings. A moment of serendipity led to Anthony capturing "The City of High Point" in a photo that he has since turned into this wonderful watercolour painting.  Not only is it the name of the train but also of the town of his birth!

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 posts.
  Have a lovely creative week!
