paint party friday -- butterflies!

It's been ages since I last joined in at Paint Party Friday, so I think it's about time!

In addition to finishing up a couple more houseplant portraits, I've been painting butterflies this week.














It's been fun.

I'm leaving my giveaway open until tomorrow morning when I'll choose the winner. Thanks to everyone who has left such lovely, encouraging comments. They mean so much to me. I'm really looking forward to choosing a winner and putting together the package!

But now, off to the party. Won't you join in, too?

  3. These are just stunning! And so much nicer than that Victorian custom of snuffing the real ones for framing.
