Summer of Color (2) Weeks 2 and 3

Hi,  we came back from our hols on Saturday and had a great time.  Martin is improving thank goodness and  is due to have some more clots removed in early July.

Mint Choc Chip                                             Baseball Nut

Am showing my take on the Summer of Color Weeks 2 and 3 hosted by the lovely Kristin; over 100 artists and crafters took part last week, how fab is that.

Painted in Water Soluble Wax Pastels with a Digital Frame




Hand drawn and painted in Acrylics and Gesso, plus Stamping

If you have word verification turned on it is most difficult to read these days and has taken me up to at least 3 attempts to get it right.  With so many bloggers entering the Summer of Color Challenge I just don't have the time to do this, am sorry.

Have some serious catching up to do on all your fab blogs so will be seeing you soon.  Take care of yourselves and have a Happy Monday.  Hugs Annette xx

Hi Netty, so pleased you had a great holiday and Martin is improving, beautiful projects, she is a stunner and adore your cute row of houses. xx

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Glad you added that about the word verification. I am ready to stop leaving comments when that happens.

You have a couple of beautiful pieces for the Summer of Color. I especially like the tag with the houses.

NatashaMay said...

Hugs, Heidi:)

Virginia said...

Oh Netty don't stress if you aren't getting around everyone, it's just lovely to see what everyone is creating isn't it. I too am finding the word verification just a little frustrating, I took mine off recently because I see the posts before they are published anyway so it seemed a tad pointless for me to have it. Glad you are enjoying the challenge can't wait to see what else you create

Hugs

Sandy said...

Sandi said...

She is just so darned sweet and I adore the row of houses! I agree with you on the verification - I just think asking me to prove I am not a robot is RUDE! LOL Well I do! Turn it off and use approval of comments!

joanna said...

The girl is so pretty, Annette! and adore the little houses in a row!
xoxo

denthe said...

Lovely girl, and that tag is so cute. I totally get what you're saying about the word verification. It drives me up the wall sometimes, and it seems the words are getting more unreadable by the day ...

Electra said...

These are really wonderful
Annette. And I too hate the word verification.

Piarom said...

so lovely your painting and tag...my favorite is the tag. it reminds me at sunny days in holiday in egypt ;)

Sharon Wunder said...

Sweet! Love your work.

linda (dots n doodles) said...

Two gorgeous pieces. I think my favourite is the little houses though.

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

I like that you did something different for each- I love your minty lady (those are some of my fave colors combined :)) and the houses are GREAT, love how they're all line up together in a sweet row- LOVE it!
Hugs,
Stephanie
P.S. I don't spend time commenting with word capcha either, it's just too frustrating!

Lesley said...

Hi Netty, great work on both pieces.
Love those little houses, adorable.
