Paint Party Friday - Week 21 - Index Card Paintings

This week I again went back to creating index cards for my ICAD (Index Card A Day) project and had a mini Paint Party (holiday Monday here) with my daughters Katie and Ruth joining in, and my friends Deborah and Scott as well! They came over to have a swim, saw the paints and started to play too!

Freeform Flowers

Flowering Branch

I still have red on my mind and paintbrush...

My pears are getting a little colour...

Imagining a sunset...

Imagining a moonrise...

Imagining the beach on the river...

If only my apple tree hadn't died...

and Deborah took her cards with her so I don't have them to show. 

A lovely, relaxing, unexpected Paint Party this week! Happy Paint Party Friday!

  27. Lovely cards! We had an apple tree next door that died. The inside was all hollow and someone had made a nest of foam and fabric inside. All the neighborhood animals came to investigate the fallen tree. I still miss it.

    I am sorry your tree died, too.
