Happy Birthday PPF!

Paint Party Friday is celebrating its 3rd Birthday/Anniversary/Blogoversary!! Wow - where has the time gone?? When Kristin and I started it, we had no idea so many people would be interested in joining us in painting and showing what they had painted at the Party. Thank you to everyone who has participated in PPF, and who has dropped by here because of PPF. It has been delightful getting to know you and incredible seeing all the work you have created!

I wanted to paint a few party "treats" for all of you - wish it were an in-person party and these were real... let's just imagine they are. All parties need cupcakes!!



and because one wasn't enough... I made a bunch more


Is anyone else fed up with this long hard winter we are having? (And lucky you if yours has been otherwise!) In my journal this is the type of thing that has been appearing to me. 

"come swim with me..."

I think I am going to listen and go meet up with this little guy soon!

Have a wonderful time at the party! Thanks so much for visiting and for being part of my art life.

oh and for Monday - a favourite of mine...

  1. It's been a wonderful 3 years and hopefully 3 more. I want one of each, cupcakes that is.:) tee hee. It hasn't really been winter over here and already it's very springy over here. I don't care for summer so hopefully spring will linger. Happy PPF to you and thank you for hosting. I love your St. Patricks Day.

  15. Eva,
    I had just discovered your blog. I think it is great as one gets to paint and submit every week. This will mean 52 paintings in the year. Otherwise one may not be painting at all. Wonderful!
    (I submitted my first entry today. I have as yet to learn how to do the watermark PPF but I'll get it done within the next few days and make it proper)
