Paint Party Friday

It's Time to PARTY!!! 
Thanks again to Eva and Kristin for hosting our little get together every Friday ♥ 
Not a whole lot of art done here this week. 
The garden is finally bearing food and things had to be processed ♥ ♥ ♥ 
This is what I did manage to get finished. 
At least I think it's finished... I'm not really  happy with it though so it may get reworked a bit. 
I liked the face better in the sketch so maybe that is what I'll rework. 
With 80% humidity it's steamy hot but still not as hot as last week was. So I was able  to get some things done outside. 
I do have a bit of Garden Art I can share though if not much of my art...

These little glass bugs are solar lights :)  

 Old brake shoes with rebar and vintage glass conductors . I did assemble this one. 

The grave site of the best dog ever... He was a rescued Australian Shepard that had been abused and he captured our hearts and then broke 12 years later when he left us. ♥ 
I like to pick up brass bird statues at the flea market  and tag sales...
The wire ball is made from and old bundle of barbed wire I picked out of someones trash  :-/  
The mosaic piece I made over a 5 year time while I was caring for my MIL who had dementia. I'd so a little bit here and there as she napped. Then completed it when she passed.    
The  tree in it is a Stag Horn/Elk Horn Sumac . Which is invasive so that's why it's in a pot. The limbs of the tree are fuzzy like the horns of the Elk/Stag in early spring. It had bright red cone like flower clusters.
