"I believe in pink, laughing is the best calorie burner, happy girls are the prettiest, tomorrow is another day,
 I believe in miracles"
-Audrey Hepburn


I've been experimenting with my new style of painting.  I call it free-flowing (and messy!) and I really like the look.  Here are four of my paintings in this style:



Watercolour on 8x12 watercolour paper


8x12 Acrylic on canvas board

Shades of Turquoise 8x12 Acrylic on paper

Thanks for visiting today.

Have a great week!

Hello Anne,
I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Town and Prarie.' Your blog is so pretty, and I like all of your decorations. My middle name is Anne too, and I spell it the way you do. I wanted to tell you that I have this exact same picture in my bedroom. It is my favorite picture of Audrey. I just love it. Me and my daughters started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is so charming. I hope to hear from you, and have a lovely weekend.

Elisa Choi said...

how lovely, anne. The free flowing painting makes you paint effortlessly and the result is beautiful. I am loving it especially the after a storm painting.

Jennifer said...

Hi Anne, I like these new artworks! Framing does give any artwork that extra degree of polish, as you demonstrate perfectly with your picture of the grey clouds. Love the Audrey Hepburn quote! Have a great weekend!

Helen Campbell said...

I like your free style paintings... especially the clouds. Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

Ginny said...

I really love your free flowing style. I am trying to become looser with what I do. It doesn't seem to be coming easily but maybe with practice. I definitely enjoyed your quote. It would be a great one to start each day with.

Marianne said...

Just popping in from Paint Party Friday. Love your style.
Thank you for the quote.

Phoenix Peacock said...

looks great framed!

Gwen said...

I am a firm believer in free-style and messy, but your work is not at all messy. This style really sings to me and I love what you have done....
Keep it up...this style suits you!

Great quote, it really does put a smile on your face. I love your free-style paintings, especially the flowers. They look so soft and misty, like you are looking through a foggy window.

Geckostone said...

My Jeff and I love lightning storms too! We always stand outside under the porch ( might not be too smart!) to feel the energy of the storm mounting! In Sedona we use to get double rainbows after a storm, that was pure magic!!! Your paintings are brilliant! I love the softness of the first one! Thanks for the wonderful Audrey Hepburn pic and quote, wow, now those are thoughts to make ya smile!!! Hugs, Deb

Melisa said...

Great quote! I think your watercolor flowers would make really pretty stationery. The landscape looks great framed!

faye said...

So gorgeous, Anne. The new style is beautiful. I like the flowers, soft and lovely, and I am wowed by the effect that framing had on the acrylics piece. That sky is awesome. Thanks for visiting me. I do appreciate it.

Oh I love her quote and your new messy style!

I love the dark before the storm sky too!

Nordljus said...

Beautiful quote, and your new style looks great.

Bodhi said...

Miss Hepburn always has such style. LUV the quote. Couldn't agree more. I really like the new painting style, too. It reminds me of looking through wavy glass. Very pretty.

Carolyn Dube said...

Love the free flowing style! I too love making a mess and the art that comes from it!

Debbie @ MeandMyDIY said...

How did I miss this post? I love your "free-flowing, messy" style of painting! They're beautiful, as always. You're a woman of many talents! And we loved the movie "We bought a zoo" too. It's awesome. Now I'm in the mood to see it again. Will have to see if we can remedy that! :)
