Weekend Post

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend, enjoy! It's got much colder here in the past few days, so I need to get my winter clothes out again. I have been having a lot of health problems this week, and to top it all my knee is still very painful where I fell on it,  so I'm hoping it will soon get better. Ah, the joys of getting old! At least it gave me lots of time for painting, and a great excuse not to do any housew*rk!

I have 2 more pieces in autumn colours for Tracey's challenge at AJJ. The first was made from a left-over piece of painted paper, collaged with a sunflower and with some added dried leaves and some random words:

This is perhaps the spirit of autumn, surrounded by autumn leaves. The clock shows the passing of time. I made a spring one like this many years ago, and I'm busy making another one. I would also like to remind you of the 'all about time' challenge at TIOT:

The leaves are nearly all down, and were dancing around in the wind:

They are doing some building work at the castle-ruins, I don't know why. The building sites seem to follow me just now:

Some funnies /thinkies:

Have a great weekend, take care,
happy haunting!

Thursday/Friday Post

Hi Everybody!

Time is marching on and the days seem to be flying by. I can't believe it's nearly November!

Today I am sharing another piece made in a lesson by the wonderful Christa Forrest. I painted on a canvas, and had great fun with her hair - wish my thin strands were more like that. I still have to learn more about shading, but I'm trying! I used acrylic paints and collaged her dress with paper and lace scraps:

I have a tag to remind me of my fave Halloween film, and I am linking to Michele's challenge at Tag Tuesday and to Rain's TAD, Villains:

I am also linking to Paint Party Friday

And I have some archive photos from a trip to Baldeney See (Lake) 2 years ago. The photos were remixed by Blogger:

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
