Paint Party Friday - Very Nearly Finished......!!!!!

Hi, Its Paint Party Friday time again hosted by Kristin and Eva.  My painting is very nearly finished, just have some more layers of oil pastels to do and gold paint will be added to the chair, the rest is in the detail.


' All are but parts of one stupendous whole,
Whose body nature is , and God the soul '  by Alexander Pope.

( The Banners were made from some left over Paint Squishings.  If you tap the picture with your cursor it should enlarge it and be able to see it clearer )

Am typing this in the very early hours of Friday morning as fell asleep on the sofa and have only just woken up.  Will link this up with the fab artists over at the Party later as had better get into my bed and try and get some more sleep..........yawn yawn.

Thank you for supporting me through my adventures into Art and will be back later on today to support you and all your terrific creations.  Take care of yourselves and have a great weekend.  Hugs Annette x

PS.....if its possible can you turn your word verification off as the style they are using now is nearly impossible to read.  It has taken me at least 3 attempts to understand them, on others have just had to give up.  So am sorry if you haven't had a comment from me.

A wonderful piece netty, it has just a lovely feel to it!

Pointy Pix said...

Oh Netty, I'm so glad you asked for the word verification to be turned off as I was thinking exactly the same thing this morning -I'm not a robot but I'm not able to decipher that impossible script either! I think I turned mine off a while ago but I best go check before I give off about other blogs and discover mine is the same!

I love this piece - it is so totally surreal!

Pam said...

Just an amazing painting Annette. It was fun to see the progress of it! I agree, the new word verification is terrible!!

Ephemera said...

Fabulous painting Netty, very inspirational. Have a great Weekend. xx

NatashaMay said...

Looking fantastic! :) i agree with you on word verification. It used to be just one word now there are two and very hard to read.

ArtMuseDog and Carol said...

ps. I agree with you about word verification and have not found how to turn it off ~

Lesley Edmonds said...

Healing Woman said...

This piece has such a European flair to it. I love the colors as well as the theme.

Yes, you are right about the word verification. Why oh why is google doing this to us???

Meggymay said...

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

Beautiful painting.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

So glad you visited earlier today because it gave me a chance to visit back. I'm very impressed with your painting. It is so well done and quite colorful.

I like your idea about word verification. I turned mine off in 2008 and have never had a problem. Not once, not ever! Not even a spam post. Thanks for doing your part to get this horrible robot reminder off our blogs and out of sight!

Leovi said...

I love the evolution of painting, I see it almost finished.

Crystal said...

Beautiful work! :-)

Jingle said...

This is absolutely AMAZING! And yes...I agree on the new Captcha stuff - SO HARD TO READ!

Heather said...

this is fun!!!
happy ppf to you!
hope you had a good rest - and yes i agree word verification is too difficult, not sure how to turn it off?

hastingshall2 said...

So gorgeous, Netty. I love the way the colors pop. I think the gold on the chair will be the icing on the cake. Your Alexander Pope quote is beautiful.

BlackPumpkin said...

Looking forward to seeing it completed!!

RobanStudio said...

I am loving your new art work! One could just gaze at and see different things. I agree with you on the word verifications. It's ridiculous how they changed it. Happy PPF! :-) xo

Carolyn Dube said...

So glad I clicked on it - the colors & details are amazing!!!!! Can't imagine what more you have to add, but I am sure it will be even more amazing!

1CardCreator said...

Love your painting Annette. And I am so glad to hear someone else say something about "word verification" I am having the same problem! I have gone so far as to post a no captcha note in my side bar. It only takes a moment for someone to do their own verification and allow comments to be published or deleted.

Mary C. Nasser said...

I have loved seeing all of your progress on this painting, Netty!
You are so talented and inspiring!

Happy PPF!!

Annette, these colours are lovely!

Happy PPF!

ps I feel the same way about word verification, it's getting more difficult to read the letters and I'm more inclined these days to just give up...

scapmanufaktur said...

love this page, so colorful and full of ideas

Daniele said...

amazing piece of art Annette, love the colours, so unusual
hugs

Jennibellie said...

Awesome! Love this work. I don't like the word verification thing either, but cest le vie blogger likes to make us work lol x

Sunshineshelle said...

Love the progression - also understand about the word verification, I was telling (suggesting LOL) to my babe MangaMem to try to turn it off this weekend when she has the chance on her blog too :)

bookbabie.com said...

Very pretty painting, you have a wonderful, authentic style!

Tracey Fletcher KIng said...

This is amazing... I really like that background... so cool... stunning stunning work... happy ppf

Michelle V. Alkerton said...

Interesting perspectives. The eyes have a feast to take in. Thanks for visiting my brain. I revised my family history, as my initial result had not quite captured my feeling.
Stay inspired!

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Oh yes the new word verification is verry frustrating! How very interesting your painting is Netty! It has so many layers of meaning! Patsy from
HeARTworks

Debbie said...

It's looking great!

Silke said...

Netty, this is just beautiful!! It reminds me of an exercise we had in Tam's Life Book class recently.

I'm totally with you on the new word verification - it is so hard to read! More times than not, I get it wrong.

So glad to have met you! :) Silke

Daniele Valois said...

It is so fun to watch this all come together. I love it!

Alicia C said...

What a great painting! So colorful and lively. Love the double headed person - sort of like a female Janus

OMG , completely with you re the annoying Captcha stuff----- it's been a pet peeve of mine for a while now glad to see others feel the same!

Christine said...

very pretty and interesting work! I second your plea for everyone turning word verification off! I think i'll put that in my next post!

Carola Bartz said...

What a gorgeous painting, Netty. I enlarged it and found so many things to look at. I especially like the little flute playing angel with the bird head (at least that is how it looks to me), fabulous!

Paula - Buenos Aires said...

So many details to look at. Vibrant colours, great energy.

Heidi said...

Wow this is stunning!
Fantastic work Netty:)
You are so talented.
Hugs, Heidi:)

Andrea C said...

It's so inspiring see how much joy you get out of your paintings, and expressing yourself so creatively.

Linda said...

Hi Netty....sorry I'm late coming to see you. Love all your artwork, as always, especially this colourful piece! I love how you try so many different styles.
And I'm with you re: the word verification :-/ its ghastly.

Geckostone said...

Netty this is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!I love how you made the two sided faces, profound! Love the quote too, I wrote it down for my bedside affirmations!!!Hugs, Deb

inkstitch said...

Netty this is beautiful and inspiring. Thank you so much for sharing.

Sharon said...

Love the colors and your creative talent. I agree 100% with you about the word verification as I have had to give up on several cites with the same problem!

Gloria said...

So mystical and magical! I agree about word verification, I usually have to do it two or three times before it goes through.
I am enjoying seeing the project bloom!

CuddlyBunny said...

I love this piece Netty! Fantastic mix of color and image and shape!

p.s. I agree with you regarding the "secret word" security ... it's IMPOSSIBLE to figure out!

NEEDLEWINGS said...

I like your take on the painting. So wonderful! Keep up the good work!

Gaby Bee said...

Gorgeous painting, Netty! You have done a wonderful Job!

Have a lovely Sunday!

mustavcoffee, Gay Peplow said...

Wonderful painting Annette, I think you're growing as an artist everytime I visit, beautiful work:0) xxx

Sherry Edwards said...

Your painting is fabulous Netty, love all the colourful detail!

I know what you mean about the word verification thing - most of the time I have to guess the letters and am amazed it accepts them!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend - we have glorious sunshine at the moment, wonder how long that'll last! xx

Anjas-Artefaktotum said...

WOW your fabulous art work is an excellent and unique painting, colorful and expressiv!

Sugar Lump Studios said...

Netty - this is gorgeous! lovely piece as always! Thanks for the mention of the word verification - it is ridiculous! I hope more bloggers will boycott it!

Kristin said...

Netty, first of all, you always crack me up! You are so funny - and I have done that many times - fallen asleep on the sofa only to return to bed for real sleep! I LOVE your wip - the chair is really cool and I love what it's is turning into, oxxo

Annette said...

Netty this is a fantastic piece of art x

Sue said...

This is amazing Annette, I can't believe how tallented you are! You can't beat a nap on the sofa from time to time. Thought it was just me being a grumpy old woman about the word verification - glad it's not just me lol x

Dawn B. said...

The word verification is so strange. I don't use it on mine so hopefully you could see my blog. This is beautifully painted. I just love all the colors.

joanna said...

Just gorgeous, Netty! so many details to look at, and the colours are beautiful!

EVA said...

Such a great piece. I love seeing the progress.

We'll mention the word verification again this week - I agree, I can barely read it.

JKW said...

This is different art form for me and I am enjoying it. I understand about the verification and many times my posts just don't get published. So glad I opted to NOT have verification. Blessings, Janet, PPF

Annabelle said...

Hi Netty,

Gorgeous work. Adore the co ours and telltale composition.....so in depth with feeling and emotion.The poem goes perfectly.
P.s. I thought I was the only one having a hard time reading those letters ; ) Thanks for sharing ?
