Paint Party Friday WIP and Stampotique's Challenge

Hi, its Paint Party Friday time again; as you know this is my favourite party.  Have been very busy all week as you can tell from all the designs on my blog this week, plus all the mundane jobs us housewives have to do.......lol

Am showing closeups of my Work in Progress  of 3 Chagall paintings put into one and my interpretation of them, as it wouldn't be so much fun if it was a straight copy would it.


To be honest I think am being very brave showing closeups especially with only 50% of the work done on it.....either that or very stupid......... but its too large for me to get a clear picture on my camera.  The next time you see it will be complete.......hopefully.........


Would also like to show my Stampotique entry which is an Altered Door Stop.......Whatever possessed her?  .... I know its bizarre and it certainly was a challenge to do but such a lot of fun .............lol

Am off to the Paint Party now and to visit all your fab blogs.  Thanking you again for your great support and wishing everyone a fun and crafty weekend, hugs Annette x

Wow these are coming along beautifully- I love that fragmented canvas (SO cool) and the door stop is AWEsome! I totally get being nervous about sharing WIP's- I always am too! I think as artists, we always see the things we want to work on first....anyway, it's all gorgeous and when you're down, you'll have quite a few masterpieces!

what a fabulous way to interpret a great artist. I love the way this piece looks and I appreciate you showing the close ups of a work in progress - it can be daunting to only see gorgeous finished projects without seeing all the steps along the way.

Beautiful work Annette and you PPF art is sensational. Don't know why you are worried by the closeups they are fantastic. Cant wait to see them finished. Hope you have a fun weekend.

Jaime Haney aka ArtsyFartsy.Me said...

You're not stupid and yes you're brave. It is hard to put yourself "out there". We artists put our work out there for all to see and critique, it's like putting our heart out on a plate for all to devour.

great work.
xx Jaime
