'Oops and Double Oops'

Hi, for everyone who has been following my new Art Blog, a very special thank you and to bring you up to date with last week's art class which I was going to have blag my way through, as had jumped the gun, so to speak on my homework............well in the end I didn't have to tell big fibs because as I was going out the front door I pulled my back out and ended up crippled with pain.............so never got to the class.  Glad to say my back is OK now, just a few twinges.

Today I owned up about the homework, so much easier than telling big fibs and the tutor didn't mind at all, how great was that.  This is what I took with me today and hope to get it finished by next Friday for the end of term.  When we show all our artwork from the term and celebrate with mince pies and things.....

Work in progress with waterbased oils


This is as far as I've got with this one, still a bit more to do.

Work in Progress - watercolour based oils

Apologies for the photographs, it is very dull and overcast here at the moment.

No painting for me over the weekend as we are taking Christmas gifts to some of the family and they all live quite a way from us, so its day trips.  Plus Mum went into hospital today for her small op so naturally will be visiting her as well.

Wishing all the artists at Paint Party Friday and all my other friends a lovely weekend and will see you all after Christmas.  Take care of yourselves and have a very Happy Christmas, hugs Annette x

I LOVE the mood of these- they remind me of Mondigliani (I think it's the eyes, or tone or SOMETHING, but they have that feel to me ;)) And I think they are GREAT! I'm glad your back is better- I did that once twirling my daughter who I somehow thought was still small enough for that sort of thing, NOT! Also, I'm extra glad I visited today so I could follow your new blog. I'd wondered why I wasn't seeing your posts, but figured it was because I've been absent so much lately! Anyway, now I won't miss them cause I'm gonna put them on my blog roll right NOW!
Hugs,
Stephanie
