A Very Special Paint Party Friday for Tracey

Hi, today at Paint Party Friday we are celebrating and showing our support to Tracey who is undergoing Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer.  This lady is so brave and full of wonderful humour.  We were asked if we would like to create something for her reflecting her love of painting cups, mugs etc and then it would be made into a collage to honour this wonderful woman which you can see HERE

For my part I created this fun ATC using mixed media

Then I thought Nettie you have never drawn or painted a cup and saucer in your life, so get off your butt and have a go.

So there you have it, not a patch on the wonderful drawings that Trace does, but it was made with a kind heart.

Raising my cup to you Tracey and all the other wonderful artists at PPF.  Happy Christmas to all.
Hugs Annette xx

Paint Party Friday and Mix it Monthly

Hi, am early I know for the Paint Party Challenge but wanted you to see one of my paintings framed and ready to go for a Christmas Present to a dear young lady who is very special to me.  The reason I painted this for her is because she has always wanted to swim with dolphins but when she had the chance she was violently sea sick and couldn't get off the boat to fulfill her dream.

14'' x 11'' painted in Acrylics
Sorry about the bad photo as you can see my reflection in the glass which causes peculiar shadings.  The word Love is wooden which was painted then glued onto the glass, still you get the general idea.

Piarom has a fun challenge at Mix it Monthly - painting owls using only 3 colours.

This is an ACEO on canvas using acrylic colours:  Crimson, Cadmium Yellow Deep Hue and Cerulean Blue Hue. As you can see the owls are drawn free, also used Black and White Staedtler pens.

Mother and Daughter are on their way to have a Girly Day Out Shopping. Yep they are waiting for the Shopping Bus to spend their hard earned cash/worms.

Thank you for popping in, take care of yourselves, hugs Annette x
