Oops, I almost forgot to post for Paint Party Friday! I hope it’s not too late. I didn’t get to play along last week because we had no electricity, phones, cell service or even decent daylight for 4 days, due to Hurricane Isaac. Which apparently wasn’t a hurricane after all but still caused some major flooding around here. Our home came through safely, though. I couldn’t paint because it was so dark. It was soooo boring! But I shouldn’t complain because we came through this one with no damage at all. I spent Saturday painting. This is my version of Lady with a Red Hat – Portrait of Vita Sackville-West by Bristish/Scottish artist William Strang (1859-1921). It was good to paint with these bright colors after such a dismal week. It really brightened my spirits. Hope you like it!
