Paint Party Friday - Week 9, Year 2 - Travelling Sketchbook for February

I'm baaaaackkk! April was an incredibly busy month and I got absolutely no painting done.   :(   So I didn't make it to my very favourite party (Paint Party Friday, of course!) except to work with Kristin to make sure our PPF doors were open and drinks and food supplied so everyone else could party even if we couldn't stay around to play. Oh well - some weeks are like that! And this weekend will be another one though I am going to do my best to drop by and see everyone's efforts even if it takes all week! :)

This week, the next sketchbook in the travelling sketchbook series arrived and since I want to turn it around and get it on to its next stop as fast as possible, I painted again finally! (Yay - paint!) I find February to be a very uninspiring month for me so this wasn't my most creative work... 

It started off with a dreary background as February feels heavy and dreary to me. But then it lightened up with falling snowflakes and a snowcouple.

The poem reads...
Snowflakes 
by Linda A. Copp 

Snowflakes spill from heaven's hand
Lovely and chaste like smooth white sand.
A veil of wonder laced in light
Falling Gently on a winters night. 

Graceful beauty raining down
Giving magic to the lifeless ground.
Each snowflake like a falling star
Smiling beauty that's spun afar. 

Till earth is dressed in a robe of white
Unspoken poem the hush of night.

It is now in the mail to Carmen in the UK. Then 2 more stops and this book will arrive home to its owner, Lori. It is awesome to see all the amazing entries and words in these books.

It was a lovely weekend last weekend and I finally got to take my winter and nutcracker paintings outside and spray them with a fixative. Now I feel they are finally done!

Hope you have a painting filled and happy week ahead!
