Work in Progress for Paint Party Friday

Hi,
Have worked a little more on Marianne, but still have loads to do.  Unfortunately my cough is still wracking away despite all the antibiotics.  Coughing so much does interfere with painting as you can imagine............... but didn't want to miss another Paint Party Friday run by the lovely Kristin and Eva and all the other wonderful contributors so am showing this Work in Progress.

The painting is worked in Acrylics on Canvas, but as you can see there is loads to do on it. 

I have to go out this morning but will be back later in the day to catch up on all your fab work.  Wishing you a wonderful weekend and hope the sun shines for us all.  Thank you for all your great support.  Take care, hugs Annette x

I hope your cough eases soon, Netty - I can imagine how that would get in the way of being able to relax in to a painting. Marianne is looking well so far and i'll look forward to seeing her completed. Happy PPF.
