Paint Party Friday November 28, 2014

Once again it's FRIDAY! 
That fun day of the week we all get to share our passions and look at lots of yummy art from around the world! Thank You Eva and Kristin for putting up with us all these years and for hosting our favorite day of the week. 
Along with the rest of my U.S. friends this week was busy for me with the Thanksgiving prep work and the over indulging in food on yesterday. I was still able to get some time squeezed in for art. One project only... but a major one. I finished the painting for my Mom that I shared the WIP of last week . I'm so happy with this one and it is going to be very hard to wait til Christmas to give it too here.  
So here are a few of the WIP photos and then the finished painting.

Filling in the background and the leaves ...

Then starting on the big flower and finishing out the bud ...

....then shading the petals and adding little details here and there..

The final product...which is now wired and hanging in  the guest bedroom. 

I did share it on Facebook earlier in the week and now I have a commission for a small version. 
I have sketched out the piece and will probably get it painted nest week. 

Hopefully it will turn out well too... commissions make me a nervous wreck :-/ 
I usually say no.
Some Random Thoughts for today.....
