The Last 3 - 29 Faces - Two Star Ladies and one Wild Woman

This wild woman is copied from a fabulous African wooden mask I found on an old post card. Since she's a wild woman--kind of an extra-terrestrial being, I had her catching her dinner with her forked tongue. I can't help myself, I just love that face!

#26 - 29 Faces --Only One More Day-and 3 More to Go!

Oh no, can I do it??? I have one more day until tomorrow at midnight to get the last three final faces in. And I'm cheating again. This is an old face from when I was on my perpetual diet and people at work started a candy jar for everyone!!! I have two more creations awaiting publishing but I hate them--but whatamigonnado? I need to post them so I will meet the challenge, my challenge of completing this ON TIME!

Day 25 - 29 Faces - Happy!

My wish for you: Be Happy!

Day 24 - 29 Faces - Fly Away Home

Once again, have no idea where this came from. Drawings suggest things as I go along and I just go with the flow of it. And, I'm late in my submissions, so I must catch up before the end of the month. Five more to go....

Days 21, 22, 23 - 29 Faces - Banking Faces

Sarah Bernhardt (I'm currently enjoying a new biography about her) presents a clown face made from a tea bag. During the last 29 Faces challenge we made art on tea bags. Mine was this guy but it was so fragile I reinforced it with an ATC card and was able to make a background and enhance the colors. The third creation came out of the subconscious because of a situation (I guess) I am currently involved in. All I can say is, "I wish we could see eye to eye or more probably overcome the "I to I!"

Day 20 - 29 Faces - Energy in Gold

Cheat number two. This preceded the last picture but was transformed into a monochromatic color scheme. You can't see the gold tone at all in this scan.

Day 19 29 Faces - Bursting with Energy

Trying to play catch up today...almost more to do to stay even...then one more to get ahead! Having fun, loving this playful challenge!

Day 17 - 29 Faces - Inspired by a bio of Sarah B.

I'm reading a biography of Sarah Bernhardt and I love her style -- totally outrageous, especially for her time. She slept in her own coffin (she knew how to work the system before there was an identifiable system for gaining publicity!) Here's to the real divas everywhere. Here's to true originality!

Day 13 - 29 Faces - Cats in My Hat

Working on Mum's Day so must get ahead on the 29 Faces challenge!

Day 12 29 Faces - Swimming with the Fishes

Yes, I know the word fish is both singular and plural but you know how the saying goes: "fishes."

Day 11 - 29 Faces - I Love Sunflowers!

It's a Sunflower Day - that means it's a happy day, bright and sunny! Hope you're having one too!

Day 9 - 29 Faces - In Living Color

Okay, call me a cheater, I have added two of the same lady for the challenge This one has special highlights and she is actually the original. So pick your favorite - the one in blue or the one in color, or not!

Day 8 - 29 Faces - Blue Girl

Special effects - this is really a brightly colored drawing which I have altered with computer effects. After seeing the blue, the original might be too brightly colored even though I generally love bright colors. I may also use the original on another day when I am too tired to created another one!

Day 7 - 29 Faces - Frida Face

This is part of another May challenge by Gritty Jane for doing something inspired by Frida Kahlo (one of my favorite painters). There's a lot of Frida love out there--she's so totally unique! This is my first Frida--maybe I'll catch that Frida bug too for inspiration!

Day Six - 29 Faces - Full Moon Howl

In honor of tonight--even if a little late!

Day 5 - 29 Faces - What's Up?

This is another one that started with a small head and big head of hair that turned into curls and evolved from there. No idea where it came from--but I always seem to get the direction once I have started a drawing without a clue where I'm going. Maybe the title is indicative of this approach!

Day 4 - 29 Faces - Ascend

Now that we we've been in the depths of hell with yesterday's "seductress," let us return to the light with ascend!

Day 3 - 29 Faces - Seductress From Hell!

I'm jumping ahead before I get behind. I don't know what kind of time I will have as I am getting off work so late each day. I have the day off tomorrow so maybe I can work on stuffing a few more in before I get so far behind I won't ever be able to catch up. I need this kind of pressure to keep pushing them out! And, I really, really enjoy creating as I never know where it will take me or what will inspire me to produce!

29 Faces - Day Two - Headdress

Inspired by a tribal necklace--I turned it into a headdress to frame the face. She is a the Goddess de Headdress...hehe. I just like to play, as you can see!
