Paint Party Friday - Works in Progress

Hi, first must apologise for not being able to get around to visit all your lovely creations.  Have not been feeling up to scratch, so to speak.  It also looks a bit difficult for the early part of next week as have hospital appointments which rather tire me out and then I tend to sleep quite a bit after these. So am apologising in advance.

 Today am showing at Paint Party Friday (see my sidebar)  two Works in Progress; these are my homework pieces from Art Class.  As you can see they are both at very early stages and looking a bit rough..........hopefully I will be able to bring them together.  I was given two postcards to copy,  one by Pablo Picasso and the other by Peter Hansen, simples then for a beginner....I don't think.............lol  still will try my best.

Hope you all have a great weekend and the weather improves.  Thank you for supporting me in my adventure into the arts and for being there for me.  Take care, hugs Annette x

Your works in progress look great so far! I especially love the little girl. Can't wait to see you develop these. :)

Carola Bartz said...

Annette, I do hope that you feel better soon. I know how tiring and exhausting those trips to the hospital can be. Your health is your priority, so don't worry about not being able to visit (we're in the same boat here).
The little Picasso has been one of my favorite paintings for a very long time, and your version is beautiful. Your work is always very inspiring.

peggy gatto said...

Your style is just charming!!!

wednesday said...

I recognized the Picasso right away, so it must be better than you are giving yourself credit for. Can't wait to see how these turn out.

Hope you are feeling better soon.

Netty, I hope your hospital trip is uneventful and you are feeling much better. Sometimes life gets in the way but when we craft it helps smooth things out.
