Erstes großes Gemälde und Alice im Wunderland

Mein erstes großes Gemälde ist nun endlich fertig

Here is my first big painting finished

und ich bin gespannt, wie es Euch gefällt

can´t wait to hear what you say

Sehnsuch nach der Sonne und dem Meer haben mich hier ganz klar inspiriert ;)

the longing to see the sea and the sun inspired me truly ;)


Ich nenne sie  "Annabel"

I call her "Annabel"

Ein kleiner Einblick in mein Art-Journal

A little sneak peak in my art journal

 “One day Alice came to a fork in the road 

and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. 


 Which road do I take? she asked.  


 Where do you want to go? was his response.

I don 't know, Alice answered. Then, said the cat, it doesn't matter.”

und natürlich gab es auch wieder eine Challenge:

Sprüche von Journal Journey und hier ist meiner:

and of course there is a challenge: "quotes" by Journal Journeys


 will draw an elephant  

 through an key-hole"  Samuel Richardson 


es hat unglaublich viel Spass gemacht , wie Mitsi zu malen
"die Guten, die Schlechten und die gaaaanz Bösen"

 and it was totally fun follow to paint a la Mitsi´s workshop in Lifebook 
"the good the bad and the ugly"

Thank you dear Mitsi :)

"don´t get stressed"

Wish you an artsy and happy week

So much so amazing art! Where to start, it is all so very good. I love the "Alice" with the clever words to match the clever painting with the textures and intense colours and those wonderful figures, then the great elephant and fantastic quote, and your "ugly" picture - ha! ha! OK then I won't get stressed! and "Annabel" just wonderful.
Enough here for a month's worth of posts, well done, Conny, I love it all.

Annabel hat ein ganz zauberhaftes verträumt und doch ganz wach, sieht sie aus.

Die Farben von den anderen Bildern find ich auch total klasse. :-)

Liebe Grüße

lorik hat gesagt…

I think Annabele is very sexy and very strong! I love the way she stares straight at us and seems to emerge out of a painting but also from the sea. Beautiful work Connie.
thank you for sharing your first large painting on Mandarin Orange Monday:)

Beautiful work.

I love your Annabel painting. The yellow flowers give vibrancy and depth to the painting. Her eyes have an intensity that draws one into the painting.
