Paint Party Friday: Week 52, Year 3 Check-In

Welcome to the last week of Year 3 at Paint Party Friday! How fast the weeks (and years...) fly by! Next week is our big birthday/anniversary/blogoversary party - if you'd like to paint something "party" related, please join in with the theme, and if you want to show anything else you are painting - that, as always, is great too!
This week, the number generator chose #86, Carol Samsel. Carol showed us many of her faces she was creating for 29 Faces in February (drop by and check them all out!) including this lovely lady who she mentions is part of a larger painting... Looking forward to seeing the rest of it, Carol!

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 great creative week!

  13. Congratulations Carol - what a great feat to complete 29 faces. ! Happy PPF .


  14. Congratulations Carol, love your work.
    I'm so happy I'm living in this day and age for it was the internet that opened the doors in discovering my art potential.Through it, I found three gals that were instrumental to my seeking knowledge and having the ability and confidence that I too was capable of painting. I never studied art, always thinking you had to draw like a master to be enrolled in the course but now I know better.
    It started with Suzi Blu and then Eva and Kristin followed. Still on the journey and loving it!!!
    Congratulations to Eva and Kristin for creating and hosting this wonderful group of artists, very much appreciate your time and effort you've invested and still do.

    Happy PPF!
