Paint Party Friday and Summer of Color the Finale

Hi, have at long last finished my large canvas in water mixable oils - Walking in the Rain  anyways it has to rest for 6 months before its varnished which leaves me a bit of time in case I change my mind............



Here is how it was the last time I showed you................
very red............lol

The Summer of Color 2013 is ending this week.  Have taken part the last two years and each time I've tried to vary it.  This year have made a collage, using the chosen colors by the majority (we all voted)...........have to say my choices were in the minority.........lol......it was a great challenge to take part in and to see all the wonderful pieces the members displayed.


I would also like to enter this fun piece of work with Ali-Craft who are asking for Butterflies

Thank you for visiting me and hope you enjoyed my offerings for Paint Party Friday and Summer of Color.

Am taking a blogging break until September and I hope to see you then.

Have a terrific weekend and take care of yourselves, hugs Annette x
