Welcome to Week 17, Year 4 of Paint Party Friday!

This week, the random.org number generator chose #4: Heather Foust.  Last week, Heather shared a beautiful painting titled, "Freedom To Be Me", as well as many thoughts on freedom.  The random.org number generator must have a sixth sense about things since our U.S.A. friends are preparing to celebrate their freedom this weekend!  So, please be sure to stop by Heather's blog to read what she has to say about it, and to all of our U.S.A. friends, we wish you a safe and Happy 4th of July!

Paint Party Friday: Week 16, Year 4 Check-In

Welcome to Week 16 of Year 4 at PPF! Happy Canada Day next week (July 1st) to all our Canadian friends!

This week the random number generator chose #79 - Victoria. A long time PPFer, Victoria's lovely paintings are often magical and mystical. This week she is focusing more on dancers and showed us these two works in progress, (as she describes them "in the very rough stages" - they don't seem that rough to us...)

For this week's painting spotlight, the random.org number generator chose #17 - Jane Coquillon.  Not only did Jane share a beautiful painting with us last week, she also shared a peek into her process, being "stuck", and some thoughts about when a painting is finished... Definitely things I'm sure we can all relate to!

Paint Party Friday: Week 12, Year 4 Check-In

Welcome to week 12, Year 4 of Paint Party Friday!

This week the random.org number generator chose #62: Bev Baird.  We would like to extend our condolences to Bev & her family for the loss of her father-in-law.  In last week's post, Bev shared a variety of inspiring images.  Her love-ly inchies are proof that paintings don't have to be large to create an impact...

And, in a page from her art journal, Bev shared further proof in the value of "little things"...

Welcome to Week 10 Year 4 of Paint Party Friday!

This week, the random.org number generator chose #37 - Lorraine.  Last week, Lorraine shared her very fun and painterly version of "upcycling"!  It is so exciting to think beyond the canvas...
