Hooray a Canvas finished at last................

Hi, like everyone else it has been a busy week and another busy one ahead, but did manage to more or less finish my large canvas  (24" x 20") worked in Acrylics and Oil Pastels.  There is a little touching up here and there then its good to go.


showing the snippet below so you can read the words..............


This is how it originally started out in June with its first layers


.....................................................................................................................................................

Then I drew another Frida, this time in an abstract style with pens and oil pastels on copy paper, for Art Journal Journey.


Made a tag with a origami dress as an experiment..............


and have started a new canvas, this time much smaller - 10" x 12"

I will be submitting all these works to Paint Party Friday
Thats been my week on the art and crafts front.  Thank you again for all your loving support and kind words. Wishing you a very happy and healthy week.  Hugs Annette xx

Love your painting. I also think your sketch of Freda in that abstract almost cubist style is really excellent. I love looking at her in a slightly different style.I bet she'd like seeing herself that way too.

Nicole Beadwright Campanella said...

Wow Netty you have been busy. I love your bald headed girl. I too draw hairless women. They are so beautiful as is yours. Your Frida is amazing and I can't wait to see you new piece finished.
Hope you are doing well and whishing you a very nice weekend
