TGIF: Casual Glimpse

Casual Glimpse by Karen Gadient, 2016

One more “FingerPaintingFriday”!
Watercolor and gouache on mixed media paper.

So…
I’ve done finger paintings on Fridays since March of 2015, and it’s been fun (plus I hope you’ve enjoyed viewing them), but I’m overdue for a change. Starting on Monday, I’ll be doing something new. I promise it will be colorful and posted weekly. Thank you for encouraging me while I create!

Enjoy your weekend, friends.๐Ÿ™‚

Camaraderie : KarPaiTwenMo 4 Art Marathon #20

Camaraderie by Karen Gadient, 2016

Well, it’s the final post for November. Hope you’ve enjoyed it!

Things are getting busy here with work design stuff so I might be doing less painting-for-the-blog in December, but we’ll see what happens. It’s been a heckuva November, hasn’t it? However you spent your month, I hope it was a creative success and that you have a relaxing December. Cheers!
