Paint Party Friday #10 - WIP ... "realize your dreams"

... my 2nd formal attempt at a mixed media collage on canvas ... have all my family paper dolls (mom,dad, me and my boys), and (music) clouds, cat and dog cut out. placed them precariously on a white canvas ... need to pick some WORDS too!

started painting my canvas last night, but that is as far as I got ... off to WORK today (again). If you don't know by now, I spend too much time at work and that is my biggest distraction at this point in my life from my creativity :(


There's a party going on at Paint Party Friday! It will likely last into the wee hours and even throughout the weekend. You've just got to go!


Thanks so much for the visit! ... would love to hear your thoughts ... comments appreciated!

  14. You've got my attention now so I'm anxious to see how this is going to turn out. I know how pesky old work can interfer with creativity. That's why I decided not to do it any more. =^)
