Paint Party Friday!!!

Celebrating my daughter... Monet.
For today's Paint Party Friday post I'm privileged to
share a fabulous work in progress by my oldest daughter
Monet and a little but about her!  
Monet is a self taught painter and is currently a student of life... 
studying fashion design at FIDM in L.A.
She surprised us all by flying in for my son's graduation
after telling us she couldn't make it!
She's one of my top three favorite people in the world and never
ceases to amaze me with her talents and ability to
make the world  break into a colorful song and dance
everywhere she goes!
Although her visit was too short, we did as many of 
our favorite things as we could.
One of which is always finding a new place
to eat lunch and try new foods. 
 
We also discovered the
cutest little boutique in downtown Des Moines
owned by a former FIDM student... which Monet
knew from L.A!  It's called Mint L.A. Boutique, so click
on the link and check it out!
And lastly, we spent some time painting together in the studio!
This time, instead of starting a stretched canvas that would 
have to be shipped, we tacked primed canvas to the
wall so she could just roll it up and take it back with her.
She immediately began putting paint on the
canvas...using her usual colors and style.  Confidently
she added layer upon layer....
...allowing her passion to freely flow out onto the canvas!
I love the freedom in which she paints...
her "painterly" stokes and the way she layers her colors!
While she got off to a great start, I look forward to seeing
how she finishes this piece!
Maybe the next time I visit her in L.A. it will be hanging
in the wall!
I'm also linking up with
the fabulous ladies at 
Paint yourself HAPPY!!!
