Paint Party Friday: Week 4, Year 7 Check-In

Welcome to Week 4, Year 7 of Paint Party Friday!

It's very funny how things work out sometimes... Earlier this week,  Kate Robertson emailed us to let us know that she would be sharing an interview she did with fellow PPFer, Mascha.  She sent us a link in case we wanted to share it with all of you.  Well, we were planning on sharing the link at the end of the post, but apparently the random.org number generator had other things in mind... This week, the random.org number generator chose #19... Guess who #19 is... Kate Robertson!  Can you believe it?

Who are we to argue with the Universe?!? we're taking that as a sign that we should start by sharing the link to Kate's interview with collage artist, Mascha.  You can find it here.

Last week, Kate shared a series of delightfully diverse paintings created for a free program she is taking part in.  To learn more about the program, and to see more of her wonderful paintings, please visit her blog!
