Mint Chocolate Chip

Summer of Color2 inspiration for next week is mint chocolate chip.  Love the ice cream - but very stressed by the combination of colors for some reason.   I actually created the bottom painting first with Dylusion spray ink and acrylic paint and stencils.  I had so many other ideas but they weren't working and I was stressing.  So this morning I drew this woman.  I absolutely didn't try for perfection and just let it flow.  I thought I would never wear glasses like that but she would.  I thought she just wasn't afraid of who she was (I was acting like I was afraid when I stressed over my painting!).  So - I have 2 for next week's challenge and I'm linking to Paint Party Friday as well.  LOVE to have comments - so leave me one if you can.  Have a wonderful day - blessed by God and art!

  6. This is wonderful! Thank you so much for all the beauty shared! I wanted to let you know: for some reason, your link pops to your mint chip work instead of your beautiful flower pin for Rainbow Sherbet. I have tried to adjust the link a couple of times without success.

    SO, if anyone is reading this, PLEASE check out the gorgeous pin for this week (on the left) and I will keep this link up as it is for your Rainbow Sherbet entry. You can then post this mint chip link again as of Monday to be entered into the mint chip giveaway ;).

    Thank you! Kristin xo
