Loads of Stuff..........

Hi, am over the Pneumonia, but now have Bronchiectasis.  On the plus side am taking antibiotics which is helping with the nasty coughing..............so onwards and upwards, looking forward to 2015 being a healthy and stress free year...............yea, we can dream............lol


MYSTIQUE
Painted in Acrylics on Canvas Board 10 x 12"


Then had a play with a photo progamme and these are the results............yea love it.....



Inspired by the Digital Master Sarah Jarrett

Using Acrylics on Canvas Paper............glamourised and spooked a Modigliani favourite


You will have to excuse the next one which was inspired by Francoise Nielly...........this was painted in my journal when I was feeling like hell..........and methinks it shows............lol

Pretty Gruesome
These are all for Art Journal Journey and Paint Party Friday.


Am now some quick pencil sketches on drawing paper............

The Modigliani Girls





A mixed bunch

and last but not least a beautiful handmade quilted throw by my sister Alicia Nicholls which was my birthday present.......how lucky am I, very lucky.



Sorry about the loads of photos, but this is what happens when you have been away from your blog a long time............lol

Wishing you a lovely weekend and take care of yourselves, hugs Annette xx

Hello Netty, it's good to see you back in business, hope everything gets better soon.
"Mystique" is a terrific painting and what you have done with it in Photo-editing is priceless, including the lights and the way you have lit up the painting, I love it.
Poor "Pretty Gruesome" she definitely needs a touch of photo-editing.

Sorry you are still unwell, hope you feel better soon. Really wonderful drawings and paintings.

Deborah said...

Goodness, you are having a timne of it! And you still manage to produce such vibrant, beautiful art. Love the Modigliani girls too - they remind me a little of African women with the rings on their necks.

Your sister's quilt is awesome, there's much work in it!

Love the glamorous reds you've used in your acrylics paintings!

Nicola McLean said...

You've really been through the wringer this year with your health netty. I hope 2015 sees you fit and healthy. I love how your painting looks in that big red luxurious room! And yes the one you did when you were ill certainly reflects your emotions at the time! Your sister is very talented-beautiful quilting.

butterfly said...

So sorry to hear you're still struggling to get back to healthy happy living, Annette - I certainly second your wishes for a better 2015!

You are still doing amazing work nonetheless - love your first painting (especially on the gallery wall!), and the zhuzhed up Modigliani is fabulous. Am completely bowled over by the sickly journalling - as in deeply disturbed/impressed at how you made your insides spill out onto the page!

Do take care of yourself, and I hope you manage to find yourself some calm and rest in the run up to the festivities.

denthe said...

Glad to see you're back. Now here's hoping that your cough will go away fast! Love your version of Modigliani, and your different sketches. But I love the "gruesome" one in your journal best. Full of feeling and emotion. Art doesn't have to be pretty, as long as it conveys emotions it's beautiful.In my eyes anyway ....

Lisa Isabella Russo said...

Beautiful and expressive art Annette! I especially love the eyes in the first one. I hope you feel completely better soon. Lovely quilt that you were gifted with!

Alie Hoogenboezem-de Vries said...

Wow you've made such different and lovely art Annette!
The Mystique has to be my favorite!
Compliments for the quilting skills of your sister!
And of course good luck with your health..hopefully you'll recover soon!
Alie :-)

Sandy said...

Goodness gracious Sweet Pea - bronchitis right after pneumonia! I hope you are getting lots and lots of rest and lots of good for you fluids too. I wish I was there to make you some really good chicken soup!
I always love visiting you and seeing your delightful art work. Can't get over what you did with the computer.
Please take care of yourself Valerie.

Love your pics, Annette! and the quilt your sister made, is awesome. I'm really looking at the quilt because I'm into quilting at the moment as well :)

JKW said...

I am so sorry. I had pneumonia as a child almost every year living in the north and harsh weather. I've only had it twice as an adult. So tired I didn't want to breathe. Hope you are quite well soon. Loving the colorful art and most wonderful sketches. Blessings and (((Hugs))), Janet PPF
