SUMMER OF COLOUR - Shades of Orange

Hi, sorry have not been around much but this cough and cold just seems to want to hang on and to be honest I am sleeping a lot at the moment as am worn out with it, but hopefully it will get better soon.

This week the lovely Kristin has chosen Shades of Orange for our Summer of Colour and the Bonus part this week is to incorporate a Poem or a Quote.

This Painting is worked in Acrylics. The Quote has been incorporated using my free digi programme as would like to use this painting in other ways, plus its not really finished yet.......  I hope you like it as it cheered me up no end.

There will be some fabulous pieces created for the Summer of Colour and if you would like to see them just tap my Summer of Colour sidebar.  This is our last Summer of Colour and all of us who took part will definitely miss it.  Thank you Kristin for doing this and for all your hard work and support.

Thank you for all your good wishes and your support, hope to get around to everyone very soon.  Have a great week and take care, Hugs Annette x

Hi Nerry.... so sorry you are still feeling poorly.
This painting is fabulous.... you really have a TRUE talent. I absoloutely love the simplicity of it and the colours are glorious. When you tire of it (if ever) it would sit very nicely on any wall in my house lol
Get well soon.... we miss you xxx

Really beautiful painting Netty and such gorgeous colours.
So sorry to hear you aren't feeling great and I know just what it's like as I have it too. Went down with it over 10 days ago and still feel rather rough as it's knocked the stuffing out of me.
