Paint Party Friday #14

Guess what?  It's Friday!  That means it's time for Paint Party Friday - yah!
I want to show you the little aceo I created this week called Mary and Her Lamb.
It serves two purposes.  For PPF, of course, and for the DAWG monthly challenge, and this month it is Nursery Rhymes.
I had this idea in my head right away, but it took some time before I finally sat down to sketch it out.  Then it took me a couple more days to get out the colored pencils and create it.  It's for sale in my etsy shop, in case you or someone you know may be interested.

This is my before and after shots of another yard ornament I spruced up.  I thought the colors were pretty faded so I got busy and turned the little fat birds into black capped chickadees and brightened up those dull pink flowers and the green grasses.

This is of course, the after shot.  It really stands out now instead of blends in.
Hope you all have a glorious weekend.  Don't forget to check out the other wonderful paintings on PPF!
Happy PPF!
Hugs~  Brenda
