Pandora's Box WIP and Myrtle is finished.......woo hoo

Hi, I overslept again this morning, must be my hibernating time.........is it the same for you?
Friday is Paint Party Friday hosted by Eva and Kristin and its where we get to see a terrific variety of artists works.  Loving this group of artists who inspire and support each other, what more can you ask for.....

Pandora's Box is in its Second stage, first layers of paint are on and she is becoming a bit of a beauty.....ooh I wish I looked like her first thing in the morning..........or anytime of the day come to think of it..........lol  Will hopefully be working on her over the weekend as there is a long way to go yet and would love to finish her by Christmas.......

Myrtle is complete............woo hoo and she is now hanging up in our Flat and of course the more I see her like this the more I want to add to her..........but am resisting at the moment........

Time to get out of my PJ's, showered and dressed as we have shopping to do.......... will be back later to see all your fab work.  Thank you for your wonderful support; blogging friends are simply the best.  Take care and enjoy the weeked, Hugs Annette x

Both look really good - i love the texture to the paint in Myrtle.
As for oversleeping - nope been up at 6am 4 days this week to walk the dogs before work (in the dark!) so am feeling both energised and exhausted at the same time!)

I wish I could oversleep - although for once I didn't wake before the alarm today! (except for the middle of the night trip to the bathroom but that's an age thing!) Anyhow, I love these!! Enjoy the rest of your day. Sorry I haven't always left a comment lately, but I have been by!

With apologies to all the Myrtles in the world, I do wish she had a more modern name. She's so nice. Don't dare add another stroke! And the WIP is so gorgeous.

Pandora is coming along nicely, and I know you are glad to be finished with Myrtle, you have worked on her for quite a while now. I admire anyone who works that way. I stick with watercolors so I can just splash and go.

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

I am loving Pandora's Box, and I really enjoy getting to see her emerge step by step- it feels like being there in the studio with you. I bet Myrtle looks incredible hanging on the wall!
Happy PPF,

wonderful to see your pieces Netty. I love the one you have finished. i love the design and color of it, so unique and wonderful. wishing you a great time finishing the other.

Mary C. Nasser said...

Congratulations on completing Myrtle! She looks amazing! And so does Pandora's Box! :)

It's definitely a challenge for me to get up...I get up quite early because I teach, and with it becoming darker and colder outside, even my fur-baby sleeps in and doesn't wake me! :)

Happy PPF!!

Hi Netty, Pandora is going to be a beauty! Love the texture and color on Myrtle too. I overslept as well, two days in a row and I never do! Must be the season - it's been dark and cold and bed just has felt so good for a change.

Hi Netty!
They look fantastic. I too always want to add more, it's always better when I force myself to put the paint brush down!
