Paint Party Friday: Week45, Year 5 Check-In

Welcome to Week 45 of Year 5 at Paint Party Friday!

This week random.org chose #17: Nordljus.  Last week, Katja shared an inspiring blog post for the new year.  In addition to her wise words about letting go of expectations and self-imposed pressure, she also shared this beautiful painting that is the beginning of a series that will help her achieve her studio dreams for the year.  We're looking forward to seeing where her explorations take her!

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 fun, playful, and expectation-free week!

  16. Beautiful artwork and I love the idea of letting go. It's what I've been practicing lately and it has me feeling lighter and freer. Now if I could just lose the 10 lbs. I put on last year...then I'll really feel lighter! :)
