Paint Party Friday Week # 40

Good morning you all, another week has sped by; Christmas is nearly upon us, we have only two weeks left till the year is over, and it's PPF again, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin.
I didn't have much time for painting this week, as I needed to do mounds of washing (wonder who makes everything dirty?), make several visits to the dentist, and complete a lot of other projects that I need now. My *Smash Book* is finished, looks good, even if I say it myself, and seems to be related to me - it's got very fat around the middle - now that everything is in it. I have made it a *belly-binder* out of green striped ribbon to hold it all together.

But back to PPF. I started painting a picture of the lunar eclipse which we had here on December 10th, I have used acrylics, water colours and pastels. I am not happy with it yet, so will continue work on it next week. The photo is definitely better!




And this is a picture which I have been working on here and there for the past couple of weeks. It has been painted on Anna Griffin paper, then stamped, and has some dry gel transfers added. I think I will leave it as it is now.




That's all for today! I am off to the dentist now, hopefully for the final,and absolutely final visit this year - more about it tomorrow! Have a good day, take care of yourselves, and thanks a lot for dropping in!

  35. I love your eclipse landscape. I have always been attracted to paintings with a moon in them..I think it's a primal woman thing! LOL. Your other art piece is like a delicious puzzle, I keep discovering things hidden here and there.
