Paint Party Friday

Time is slipping by faster and faster it seems. My list of things to get done in a week just grows and grows and the list of finished projects is smaller and smaller.
Time is not my friend it seems.
I did get a few things done this week. 
A new painting from my class with 
"A Life Full of Color"  
This one is right at the top of my list of all time paintings I've done. 
When I watched the class video the first time I knew exactly what drawing I was going to use. I had originally drawn her in 2015 for the 29 faces challenge and knew I would paint her someday. 
There are minor changes but then you really never can redraw the same thing twice and have them be exactly the same. I did start off giving her bangs in the painting but it just wasn't looking right so I took them back out. 
I also did or should say finished a spread in one of my journals....

I decided she needed a playmate since I had managed to skip a page in the journal when I painted her. 
Other than a couple of backgrounds that is all of the art for this week. I spent the rest of the time outside enjoying the Spring like weather and doing clean up jobs around the place. The last two days winter has returned with cold freezes both nights so a lot of the trees that thought winter was over has had their blooms frosted.  May not be a good year for fruit here. :( 

The daffodils are happy though... it takes more than a couple of freezes to do them in..
