My Second Piece for the Summer of Red!!

Hi, had already done one piece for the Summer of Red on Saturday (the post below)  but then I had a whacky idea in my head on Sunday to paint this postcard.  Have I gone bonkers................who can tell......... and am I worried.......no not a jot.....lol.     My first thought was to call it Three Heads are Better than One.  What would you call it...........apart from rubbish......lol
Ah well, we all need to play don't we........oops nearly forgot to say they are NOT ears but arms.......from the men inside..........hmmmmm, definitely an Alien..............

Hope you all have a fun week and am looking forward to seeing all your fab creations.  Take care, hugs Annette x

PS:  Have just found out from Julie I've won the Colour of Brown...........woo hoo
