Facing the Storm ~ Painting Finally Finished!

First of all thank you for all your helpful comments on my last post - keep 'em coming! It's nice to know I am not alone on this strange journey called life...
But for now to a painting I finally finished early this morning! It had been sitting for a good long time, but then it came together quite nicely.
I painted with acrylic paints and layered it with some handmade (not by me) paper.
I love her little companion, a pretty white mink.

And because it was so much fun last week, I am linking to both, the fabulous Paint Party Friday and Illustration Friday

Wishing you a fantastic Friday and thanks again for continuing to visit!!

    I saw that it is raining in Savannah. It is still raining in Atlanta but I'm sure we will both be getting lots of sun soon.
