The beat goes on...

Apologies for being away so long.  
I must confess, I was lurking and visiting your sites each week but the frustration of not being able to comment got to me.  Nothing is resolved but I decided I had better touch base with those that follow me, or lose them in the atmosphere.
I have been painting and using collage in new and different ways.

My idea of a Tuscan scene.  This one the sky is painted and the rest is collage.


This one I call "the road warrior".  If you look under the tiny diamonds, you will see a tiny man crossing the horizon.


Another mix of collage and paint.


And last one, The First Show, is an assignment for a class I am taking from Kerry Didday.
He uses a dry brush technique and is encouraging us to do figurative art.
All new to me but I am enjoying it.
Wishing you a Happy Paint Party Friday.

Lovely to see you back Susan... we bloggers wait for each others' returns, no time limit :D)
Such amazing work, you've been so very creative. I love each one but my very favouritest is the Tuscan.
The dry brush workshop looks great - enjoy yourself... to do figures like you've done is just ....wow!
I haven't joined in PPF this past week but popped in to catch up xx
