Paint Party Friday - Happy Independence Day!


Today, I painted this piece for the ACEO Theme Week Challenge. The theme this month is "Patriotic". I hope the image inspires you to appreciate the freedoms we are celebrating this weekend "...life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

  2. This is so sweet and a great representation for 4th of July. I find children's cheek's so difficult to draw or paint--you've done a great job.
