Whew! Did these today first thing and last thing. With lots of errands in between. And with them wrap up the second 29 Faces Challenge I’ve participated in. I can’t recommend this exercise enough! Both times I’ve learned and accomplished things I never thought I could. And met some pretty neat artists along the way. […]
It’s weird… I was nervous to draw my sweetheart. Silly me. I wanted it to be perfect. It isn’t. But. It’s a close enough likeness that Facebook recognized who it was when I posted it to the 29 Faces group. I’ll take that as a good sign. I’ve been fighting my inner critic and the […]
Squeee! My first piece of fan-girl art. This one is going on my to-do-again list.

Day 25. Calling this one “Siren” not only because of the tentacles/hair but because I had a hard time stopping. LOL! It is my new favorite in this series. And a personal best. Worked from a face photo and that helped. Though it doesn’t resemble the face much (mine). I would love to try this as a painting […]
