Fourth of July, just a little delayed

It has been a very hot weekend here in Michigan. We spent Saturday celebrating my nephew's 15th birthday, Sunday was a fun outing with my Sis-in-law to shop Ann Arbor, and then today my hubby joined me for a 6 mile training walk that I turned into almost 8 miles by accident. Thankfully the walk was over before it got to the true heat of the day. It has been a pretty relaxing weekend considering everything and except for the firecrackers scaring my dog to the point of her hiding in the bathtub, its been very enjoyable.
Miss Suzi sent out a challenge I believe on Thursday to put together a patriotic Petit Girl and I've been working on mine in small bits here and there since then. I wasn't sure if I'd get her done. I missed the holiday, but the actual deadline was today so I did it! Suzi teaches the most amazing courses and I've been able to elevate the level of my drawings and painting to a new level thanks to her classes. She is amazingly supportive of her students and lots of fun as well. If you've never heard of her or her classes I encourage you to take a look. I'm sure you'll enjoy what you see at her site.


  1. Sounds like a fun weekend. Your painting is lovely. I really like the fireworks you did behind the girl.

  2. How beautiful! I love the layers and the pledge of allegiance (right? I am a transplanted Canadian here in Colorado, trying to learn all of this! lol) written out at the bottom. What white pen did you use? So many of my white pens won't write on top of mixed media things...
    I am going to follow your blog, I love your work!

  3. Really nice Petit Girl, Brandy. Is that you and Fozzy in the pic? :) x0x0

  4. Ok It's August already and just 'cuz you have pink hair doesn't mean you get to stop posting. Where are you...again!
