Paint Party Friday and almost ready...............

Hi, haven't been able to go to the party the last few weeks but today am showing a page from my sketchbook done in watercolour pencils and glitter in the Mucha style.


and this is a canvas which am in the middle of sketching, its a combination of Chagalls paintings with my own twist.  Am trying to be a bit more adventerous.  Looking forward to seeing how this develops, it could take some time as am not the fastest painter on the planet.


I visited the Consultant yesterday and he is pretty sure its not Lung Cancer, which is a huge relief but still have to have a few more tests yet to establish what is wrong with me.  Am feeling a little stronger each day and in less pain so thats all good stuff.

Hope you all have a great weekend and the strong winds and rain subside.  Thank you for popping in and supporting my latest adventures.  Take care, hugs Annette xx

Very lovely Mucha style girl, you did a great job on it. The sketch for the big painting looks so absorbing, I'd have a hard time working on anything else.
