Paint Party Friday

Hi, after all the stresses I could not make it last week for Paint Party Friday so am showing two paintings from my art journal today.


This page totally reflects the way I was feeling using Black Gesso and Acrylics.


and this page was made for fun in Acrylics.

Thank you for all your terrific support.  Am going today to visit my mother who is recovering well from her operation, so will be back later in the day to visit all your wonderful creations.
Take care of yourselves, hugs Annette xx

Beautiful paintings Netty, specially like the bottom one though I understand that the top one perhaps expresses more what you are going through right now.

Hang in there!! Have a good weekend too!

Good luck with your mum. I LOL at what you said about the black gesso. It really is very dark, isn't it? I love the second painting - very fun. Happy PPf!

I really love both of these. Isn't it funny 'how' we are feeling comes out in our art, without us knowing it most of the time. Great job!

I've always wanted to try out the black gesso, these look great, love how the colors really pop with the black!

Your husband was in hospital, your mother recovering from an operation!!!
Don't forget to spoil yourself once in a while nurse Netty.
The first painting made me feel sad, wanted to comfort you (like the angel wings around you) and the second is a nice and sweet one.
Take care Netty, love Gery

Both great paintings Netty, my Father-in-law had a stroke a couple of weeks ago so I could quite easily have created the top one myself too !

Belinda Carson said...

Your painting with black gesso and acrylics is deeply expressive. It reminds me of how I feel when I am overstressed and have been drained emotionally. I hope you have been able to take a little time for yourself and to take care of yourself!!
Love your fun painting too!! Happy PPF!!
