Oh, yes it does snow in the tropics. . .

Watercolor painted pictures, I added markers, pastels, pens, and glitter. It does snow sometimes in the tropics. . . Palm Trees. It is on an ACEO watercolor card.
Thank you Eva and Kristin for Paint Party Friday, keeps me doing what I love, learning from others, and making it fun besides.
Thank you for visiting this past week. I celebrated a 'big' birthday and didn't have a chance to visit all of you. I am so sorry.

I love when the horses do their thing.

 Notice the dust as he shakes it off. 
OK is the dustiest place I've lived so far.

Yellow Cottage by the Water

I borrowed an idea. . .the cards that come in the pack of printer ink for printing photos. . Some said they used them with ink. I used the shiny side with prismacolor Premier ink both ends small/large. I also use pastels and acrylic. Using the shiny side was a challenge. I enjoyed painting my faves.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for a wonderful place to share and learn Paint Party Friday . . .Love the comments, thank you so much they are so helpful and friendly.
