Friday already?

 We are spending time out west this winter. We tried it last year and decided to come back again this year. Our two little grandchildren, 1 1/2 and 3 1/2 are fifteen minutes away. We spend most days of the week at their place attending swimming and tumble lessons or babysitting so their mom can make it to appointments or the store without them in tow. So even though I brought all of my supplies, I find I have much less time to be creative than I thought. I am ok with that though, as they are my main focus while I am here. 

I have participated in a few painting challenges such as this one to use primary colors

I have been playing with inexpensive paper. These might get turned into cards or just tossed. 
I also found a tutorial for painting roses so tried this as well. I need lots more practice:) And less water:)

I hope you have enjoyed a wonderful week of painting or being with family or staying healthy. 

I am fighting a cold but I do think I am now winning. 

Thank you for visiting and for your kind words. Adding this to PaintpartyFriday. Please visit the amazing artists who are linked there.
