Paint Party Friday - Week 17 - More Sketchbook and ICAD

A beautiful summer week (yay!) and I did get little bits of painting done. Still no canvases but more index cards for my ICAD project and a journal page for my Walking in my World Journal.

My favourite this week - the night's sky...

Remembering sunsets on water...

A fanciful night moth...

Some of my yellow begonias (poor scan).

Thinking about Carola's Owls.

Just playing with watercolours...

In my journal, I tried to capture a squirrel that was as fascinated by us as we were by him!


Ruth (my daughter) wanted to try her hand too - at drawing only NOT painting she said... and hers is so cute!


Squirrel by Ruth

I hope I will get the acryllics and the canvas out if only for a small one this weekend. I seem to get distracted every time I try!

Hope you have a great time at the party and I look forward to dropping by for a chat and to see your painting (and/or your ICADs)!

  1. I love squirrels and yours and your daughter's are just wonderful. How exciting that your daughter is involved with drawing, etc. I like all your watercolors but the night's sky is my favorite. Great job. I just came from outside the there was the half moon and stars in the sky. It just quiets me when I look up and see that. I immerse myself in the sky, so beautiful. Happy PPF and have a great weekend.
