HAPPY HALLOWE'EN to all my friends at PPF!
My friend Ann often holds an all-girls party near Hallowe'en... with the dress code: Basic Black, Witches Attire optional. She signs the invitation "Mistress of Your Charms". These witches parties are always a fun time, with a yummy pot luck and wonderful conversation. A great get-together. And tonight is the night!
I started looking at photos from the last party and felt inspired to paint a portrait of Ann for her party. My first painted portrait - yikes! We shall see tonight if she likes it...
"Mistress of Our Charms"
And here is the work in progress:
initial sketch and start
Messy table and misshaped hand...
Writing on side... unsure whether it adds or detracts?
The photo I used for a model:
Loraine, me and Ann
I hope you have a wonderful and fun Hallowe'en next week! I look forward to seeing everyone's paintings and will visit as time permits over the weekend. But tonight I must fly! (Where is that dang broomstick when you need it?)
