One Canvas finished.....only 2 more to go.......

Hi, finished one box canvas this week which is going to be a birthday present for one of my family, but cannot tell who just in case she reads my blog...........yep its a surprise.

Morning Glory, painted in Acrylics on a box canvas  16 x 14 inches
I previously painted this flower on a small canvas board and in much darker colours, but wanted to make a bold statement this time.

Have made some progress on Walking in the Rain, which will also be slightly different this time; will show you when its finished, probably in about a month's time.

In between have been experimenting, painting on a CD.  This might not be a great example but shows it can be done.

Painted in Acrylics

and now for my Big News..........................my new cooker arrived yesterday.............woo hoo


look how beautifully she shines.................definitely eating out again today, am not going to get this little beauty dirty..........no way...................

The paintings I am bringing to Paint Party Friday where artists from all over the world show their latest works of art and its a pure pleasure for me to see all their wonderful works.

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter and enjoy the holidays.  Take care of yourselves, hugs Annette xx
