I'M LATE I'M LATE FOR A VERY IMPORTANT DATE - PPF!

Hi, first huge apologies for not posting anything this week apart from the Scarecrows, but its been so busy here at home  like you would never believe.  Consequently am late for Paint Party Friday and its going to take me all weekend and beyond to catch up with all your blogs, but I will get there I promise.

Today everything am showing are Works in Progress as I have just been playing with my paints and experimenting.

This is my second ACEO and as you can see its not quite finished.

This is an experiment of freestyle painting on a Beer Mat..........

and this is a page from my Art Journal.........the heads need more work doing to them and am not sure what else will happen on this page.

Wishing you all a smashing weekend.  Mine is going to be spent Baking and catching up with chores plus laying  loads of conkers I collected to keep the spiders out of the home as I hate spiders.  Take care and promise I will be visiting you all soon.  Hugs Annette x

Hi Annette, Glorious paintings, love the trees and all the others look so interesting, love to watch their progress. Why would you need conkers to keep spiders away? I ask because I hate the darn things LOL Spiders thatis!! Gay xxx

Lovely painting Annette, sorry you have had such a busy week. And did you say spiders.....I HATE them!

Faye said...

You are off to a great start on your WIP, Netty. I like the bright colors in the ACEO. Are people calling them ACEO now instead of ATCs? Anyway, I love the streams of color.

Megan said...

Always like seeing works in progress... Love that you experimented on a beer mat! I've been known to do very detailed sketches around my to-do lists... instead of doing what was on the list! Hope you have a great weekend!

Love all of them; hope to see them finished. Also adored the scarecrows, how fun! Of course I must ask and show my ignorance; what are conkers?

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my Sunflowers, Happy PPf!

Daniele said...

I've that before about conkers but thought it was an old wives tale, must work if you're doing it, just hope the kids don't come along and pinch them all.Love the vibrancy of the colours that you are working with, brightens up tese dark mornings

your art amazes me. such talent

Jenny Blair said...

Oooh I really like the second one on the beer mat...very mysterious and ethereal. Hope you've been busy in a good way :)xx

SHERI C said...

I really like the colors and composition of the first piece. Can't wait to see what you do next with it. Happy PPF!

Annabelle said...

Haha!
Netty, I didn't know conkers , I assume are horse chestnuts keep long legged beasties away but I did get a few down the road the other day thinking them to be black walnuts for my crafts only to turn out to be chestnuts attracting a little chipmunk to stealing them and the acorns I collected from my garage stash. Of course the kids said that I was the thief and he deservedly has every right to them. So I kept a few for my crafts and left the rest for him to hoard....loveable little critter!

p.s. With so many medical appointments and errands I find my time for PPF limited but I try to fit it in somehow, to be frank slipping a bit but in time will be back full throttle....I hope : } Take care

Your aceo is very lively, like all the wip. Keep busy, a very good thing!

EVA said...

These are wonderful! Love the beermat and especially love the boldness and contrast of the "Heads".

Cynthia Schelzig said...
