Paint Party Friday

This week's PPF ACEO is a watercolor....inspired by my wish for summer! LOL I call it Welcome Summer!

This week we had the taste of summer. One day of 80 degree weather...alas it didn't stay. The next day it was like 50.........burrr....but I'm thankful we don't have snow like some of my facebook friends!

Beautiful Butterfly. I too wish for Summer. It may get up to 70 by tomorrow, but then back to the 50's. I am confident Spring will arrive.

You did a gorgeous job on your butterfly! Such fine detail in a little canvas. Beautifully done!

We were like you; almost 90 degrees one day and now we're back to the 40's and 50's. Ah, the Springtime! You never know what you'll get. ;)

Very pretty! Isn't he a moth though? (Moths are gorgeous too.)

I'm hoping for more Spring too but 80 degrees - what a treat after a long winter.
