Happy New Year Paint Party Friday

Happy New Year Everyone.........................First Paint Party of 2013............


Earlier last year I painted a large Canvas of Pandora in Acrylics and its been hanging on one of my walls for 10 months.  Was never very satisfied with her so made a few changes and here she is.............



Maybe in another 10 months Pandora might be changed again...........who can tell.............

Then for fun I used photofunia and put her in a street setting...............



Thank you for popping in and showing your support of my efforts it is greatly appreciated.
Take care and have a lovely weekend, hugs ~Annette xx

:) I would love to see her on my street. Before I read your description, I thought this was a picture of a goddess with a gold and green halo surrounding her--very dreamy . . . I like the juxtaposition of this initial perception with the more ominous story of Pandora . . . It's like the penultimate moment just before the effects are realized. She looks peaceful too . . . maybe she knows there is hope.

She's so beautiful... a definite temptress! And I love your photoshopping - how fabulous it would be to have artwork like this to change the urban landscape into a gallery...

Happ New Year Anette! Your painting is gorgeous - the colors behind her are certainly suggestive of what might happen if you open the box! Beautifully done - looking forward to seeing more.

Gloria said...

Wow! I really like your street exhibit! That is so cool. She is really looking good as she thinks carefully about the serious consequences of opening that box! Very "rich" looking!

Debbie said...

She is really beautiful, and looks great in that street setting! I especially love her eyes, the shape of her face, and the blush in her cheeks.

Carolyn Dube said...

lessandragr said...

I like your Pandora - she is beautiful! Really vibrant colors. What is photofunia? Where you take your painting and put it in another scene - like, maybe Pandora is really a small painting but you enlarge it and put it in a street scene?

NatashaMay said...

She looks fantastic! Love photofunia. :)

Sandy said...

Wow Nettie, I've missed my words.
This is sooooo beautiful.
Fantastic painting.
