My Journal Monday–Week 19 and 29 Faces — Blog Challenge — No. 26 & Art It Friday – Show Your Face

Paint Party FridayI’m back on a portrait track again.  I signed up with Mindy Lacefield for her the 24 Faces Project on-line class.  I’m very excited.  She has such a simplistic way of doing her little girl faces–who can resist?  I also signed up for a refresher of sorts, the Refined and Unrefined Face on-line class.  […]

My Journal Monday–Week 18
