Bits and Bobs................and more Bobs............

Hi, its good to be back in blogland am happy to say the Shingles is on its way out along with the pain (big sigh of relief).

The following is a bit of a mixed bag of artwork, but it proves I haven't been idle..........


This painting I've designed for a Wedding Card in December.  Painted in Acrylics



Having a go at the Mona Lisa in a 'Brigadoon' style setting................


A bit of fun worked in coloured pencils



Attempts to draw Jack Sparrow in charcoal pencils.................mmmmm methinks a lot more practice is needed.............lol

A small box, painted in Acrylics and coated in Varnish, definitely a fun project but difficult to photograph as parts of the varnish looks white in the photos


and finally...........


 


The above Art Journal Pages are the results from a free Art Journal Wisdom online course at Dirty Footprints Studio.  (also see my sidebar, give it a go, I promise you will enjoy it)

Phew I hope you didn't drop off to sleep with this lot to look at, don't think have posted so much at one time before...............

Thank you very much for calling in and being so patient with me...........have so much catching up to do in Blogland and also on Facebook.  Will be taking these works with me to Paint Party Friday this week.

Take care of yourselves and thank you for all your kind wishes and hugs, Annette xx

So happy you're back and NEVER drop off to sleep by your yummy images!! So sorry about the shingles..I've had them and they are horrible. Beautiful collection of work! Your Mona is gorgeous...I was suppose to be called Mona Lisa...because my dad sang the song every morning!!Thankfully Dad stopped singing it when he heard what she wanted to call me... I did get the second name spelled differently! The card for the wedding is beautiful as well!!

Feel better!

Irene Rafael said...

Hi Annette, I am glad you are up and at it again. Lovely work you displayed here. Have a lovely week.

Teresa Arsenault said...

What a lot you have been doing and all this while dealing with pain. Amazing.

Your first painting is breathtaking and the second is infused with life.

How nice that you can go from such compelling works to something light-hearted or useful.

Well done. I am a new follower of your blog. Thank you for commenting on mine.

Blessing hugs,
Teresa

JKW said...

As for dancing. . .I'll ask :) I am so sorry about the Shingles, my sis has had it twice. So glad you are over the worst of it. I recognized the Pirate (the one on the right, you have Jack's face). The quotes are great. I like the journaling you are doing, it appears to be a different style. Very creative. Blessings, Janet, PPF
