Paint Party Friday... Giving and Receiving


It's time for another Paint Party Friday!

This week I am sharing the hands I created for the Helping Hands for Japan auction.  The earth inspired hands in this loving gesture were created in colors of the world and they are surrounding a warm patchwork heart.  Sending love to Japan...  


(The hands are painted on both sides.)


I have also started a painting for Inspiration Avenue's Charity Auction to benefit Angel Faces.



Before I finish this post, I just had to mention the most wonderful mail I received - A beautiful painting by Becky L. Bowman!  I won a very generous giveaway at her blog (lucky, lucky me!!!), and I have to say "Pretty Pink Poppies" is even prettier in person.  I love it... It is already hanging on my living room wall!

Thank you Becky!!!


Now it's time to Party...
