Happy PPF and Summer of Color

Hi, today I have two pieces to show you for the party..............



The Keeper..............she is the Keeper of Secrets.  Painted in my Art Book with Acrylics

Woo Hoo, the Summer of  Color started this week and hosted by the lovely Kristin, if you would like to join in this fun time or see what others have produced go HERE......  This is the third year of SOC and have managed to take part in all of them, each time doing something different.  The colors this week are Citron Green and Turquoise.


For this year am doing Birds in the appointed color prompt.  The idea is, when finished they will be made into a collage, thats if they turn out OK, otherwise will have to have a rethink..........yep I do that a lot...lol

Thank you for dropping by, have a great weekend and take care of yourselves, Hugs Annette x

It's a pleasure to look at your painting and this little bird looks so very adorable! I guess it's a good plan to have a theme running through SOC...good idea. Wish you all the best. Maybe I should try it too...but I am not sure I am organized enough for that!
