Dancing in a Fairy's Ring Paint Party Friday Week 12

A little late in posting this but I had a few errands to run before my daughter and I accompany hubby on his trip to Winnipeg next week. It will be M's first time on an airplane. Of course hubby got stop overs so she could experience the take offs and landings....my worse part of flying, I guess he forgot.
 I wanted to stay behind and let my son go but it didn't work out, so this time around it will just be the girls while hubby goes to work for the week; hopefully we will find plenty to do while we're there :)

So I didn't get a chance to finish "A Patch of Blue"...kind of stuck on what I wanted to put in that patch, I thought I did last week but then I changed my mind after looking at it for some time.The good news is I have finally figured it out but didn't have enough time to implement it so instead of missing this week's Paint Party Friday I elected to show case a few of M's illustrations. I also threw in there a little Artist Conk that I played around with a few weeks ago when I ran out of large Conks.....how sad ):   ....Actually it could pass off as an aceo, after all it is miniature measuring approximately  2" across x 1 1/2 inches in height x 1 1/2 inches in depth...not the size of an actual aceo but otherwise similar in it's small canvas space.

So here  are the three illustrations M did......years ago.....maybe I might entice her to bring them along on the trip for her to paint.


            A Crown M saw on the internet and decided to give it a try

A Baby Whale with Its Mom


And a  Seahorse

All these illustrations were done when she was in grade six.....a long time ago....time to PAINT them I say!

And here is the make shift ACEO...An Artist Conk 2 x11/2 x 11/2

Dancing in the Fairy's Ring


Dancing in the Rockets

These lovelies are one of my favourite Wild Flowers...Dames Rocket ~ Sweet Rocket

The Sweet Scent of Dames Rocket lures the Sphinx Moth to our garden

A garden shouldn't be without them! Give them a try.

Kristin , tomorrow I will be posting a lot of the Treasures I found recently on my hunts....Promise!!!

Until next Paint Party Friday.....Happy Painting and whatever makes you HAPPY!

Oooh my Creative Process?....I never know until I get an idea , only then do I make a special note on paper of all the essentials required to make the vision come into being. Nature, Music, Poetry, Writing, art, life...... all that surrounds us is Inspiration to me.

M obviously takes after her artistic mum! i have a thing about seahorses- they are so cute and her drawing is fabulous! enjoy your trip and don't worry about the flight (says me who developed a fear of flying after years of loving it!) looking forward to seeing what idea you've come up with for the blue moon painting!

Oh, another seahorse! Love it! Yes, M should definitely paint it. Much talent there! That's an adorable little conk, too.

This is what it looked like only on the ground amongst the moss. Thanks to Zsaj for helping me interpret the scene I had discovered a few summers past.

Needed a break from woodburning and painting so I tried this lovely little toy{ Polyvore Digital Workshop } and created this collage. This is a great way for creating a virtual one before attempting a real mixed media collage, although this is art in itself. Thanks Cindy from "My Romantic Home "http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/, for introducing this great little gadget. I think I'm hooked!

Another collage I created inspired by the poem "Twilight at Sea" I used dragonflies instead of birds...I luv them both but I adore how their gossamer wings catch the light. ~Annabelle

Twilight at Sea

The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.
