Framed Mini Paintings

Thursday, June 7, 2012

I have been getting ready for the 'Lil Calypso Art Show this week, and I wanted to share some of my framed minis with you.  I will be taking two dozen with me to the show, and I have several that my daughter wants for her apartment that I painted from Joyce Washor's book.




If you are at Lake Martin this weekend, come by and see me!

Also, please don't forget about my Literary Friday Linky starting TOMORROW!  I will go live at about 8AM CDT.  Please join me!
