Paint Party Friday ~ Slow Week

I only finished one painting this week....started a few mixed media pieces, but don't want to show them til they are done.
I am continuing on my Painting BIG journey with Connie, and this is the result of one of the exercises.
I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this online class to any artist.  I am mainly an art quilter and jeweler, but a lot of times my designs are painted before they are put into those mediums.
This picture is not the best because the paint was still wet so I had to take it at an angle, but I really enjoyed this exercise and this is my favorite painting from this class so far.  The colors are a lot brighter and more intense than they are showing here also.
Be sure to go and checkout all the awesome PPF posts for this week.
Have a great weekend!
