Paint Party Friday

Hi, well they have changed my blog to the new blogger and to tell you the truth I don't like it, no, not one little bit..............moan moan....................

Today am showing 2 completed works for Paint Party Friday.

This was completed last week and popped it on Facebook
Decided to add the stone girl and give her something to sit on

Have also had a play in my Art Book with a Giraffe...............never drawn one of these before, you would never guess would you.......................lol


Thank you for popping in and hope you have a great weekend.  We are off to another Steam Festival and also a Beer Festival with a Jazz Band, so it should be good.  Take care of yourselves,
Hugs Annette xx

Love your giraffe :)
You can try to switch back to old blogger. I did not like a new one too but then just got used to. If you need any help to find something in new blooger just let me know :)

Doreen said...

Stunning paintings Annette, I don't like the new blogger either.xxx

Lottie said...

OOOOhhhh I think that the lady with the pearl earring is one of my favourite paintings and you have really done it justice - love it.

The others are gorgeous too - but the cheeky giraffe just has 'something' about him/her that melts my heart for some reason - I just want to give it a cuddle!

Suzi B said...

All are beautiful, and the giraffe is wonderful! Valerie

lessandragr said...

I remember seeing your painting with the little girl (you were wondering if painting looked better with or without her). I really like her! And your giraffe is great!

Lisa Isabella Russo said...

I love the birds in the one with the blue sitting girl, I think they are quite charming and complement it so nicely.

Anesha said...

Wow, three great works, all so different but all great!

Rita said...

All three are beautiful Annette, but mu favourite has to be the little girl. Enjoy your Week-end. Hugs Rita xx

Lea said...

I love the paintings! The giraffe is cute :) I was like that about the new Blogger at first but then I got used to it in time. Enjoy the festival!

Buttons said...

Hoping they don't change mine Nettie! I've only just got it sorted!
Anyway, loving your paintings as ever. It's nice to see the finished lady with the pearl earring, and heartening to know the little girl has something to sit on (do love this one) and what a giraffe! Love the colours on that one.
Hope you have a fab weekend. Hugs, Buttons x

Pointy Pix said...

I totally agree - I kept changing it back to the old view but they've taken away that option now so we have no choice and I don't think it's very user friendly!
Anyway, your art work is a delight - I love the giraffe - so funky!

Kathy, PaperPumpkin said...

Hi! I love your paintngs...as always. Your use of color is just amazing. Enjoy your weekend! Kath

Huh!? What has changed then? My blog is still the same as far as I can see ... and this one doesn't look different to me either ... Your work is lovely. The colours in that giraffe make it very special!

Jennie Atkinson said...

All three paintings are fantastic Netty. The giraffe really made me smile! He's gorgeous!

Healing Woman said...

I wish blogger would leave things as is. I had trouble posting yesterday. It took me 2 hours to post one small necklace!! Whatever happened to clicking twice to enlarge pictures. They did away with that on the last change.

You are always experimenting. That is one of the reasons why I love coming to your blog. Sounds like you have a great weekend planned.

Christine said...

nice to see those pieces all completed, they look beautiful!

Tammie Lee said...

JeanFB said...

Oh my! Netty, it has been waaay too long since I've visited - your paintings are exquisite! Your paintings have always showcased your wonderful talent, but you have truly grown since the last time I visited. There is such depth and subtle sophistication, gorgeous use of color (that giraffe is to die for!) - love, love, love!
