29 Faces — Blog Challenge — No. 16 & Art It Friday – Show Your Face!

Alaya Art is sponsoring 29 Faces in September 2015.  Going with a more imaginary feel again today.  Also, Kim Dellow over on her blog has a fun thing going called Art It Friday – Show Your Face.  I discovered it while browsing some linked blog pages on Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s regular Friday post Art Journal Everyday post which she usually posts regularly every Friday.  I found Paint Party Friday through Kim Dellow’s post.  This is a fun group, too!  There are some really talented artist doing all sorts of painty things over there.  Here are my entry, which is also 29Faces-No. 16.

I’m finally back in the land of the living!  I haven’t been feeling well this week and finally had to just get some rest after coming home from work the last several days.  I have decided that I am not Super Woman (imagine that!) and sometimes life happens and you just can’t do all the things that you want to get done.  So, I will do the best I can to catch up but if it takes me several day to finish my 29 Faces, then so be it.  I found I really enjoyed making this one today…and I was starting to lose that feeling when it became more of a “job” than a fun, extracurricular activity.  I hope you are feeling your best today and that my sketch makes you smile.  🙂

  1. Your sketch did make me smile and your post made me smile even more. I totally hear you about having to take a break sometimes. Just posted about that myself! Glad you are feeling better. Hope you have a good week. 🙂

  2. Glad you are feeling better. Your girl is very pretty. She looks a bit sad to me. I do like the highlights you are putting in the eyes. I know what you mean by the challenge starting to feel like a job. That is why I stopped doing most challenges. So far this one isn’t feeling that way.

    • Yes, my girls tend to have sadder eyes. Which I find pretty amusing as I consider myself a generally happy and content person! I’m doing something weird with the eye brows or the eyelids that is making them look that way, I think. I need to figure it out change their expressions just a bit. Seems I have the “sad and pensive” look down. Now I need to find a “happy and carefree” expression that I can repeat when warranted. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by, Neena. And thanks also for the kind works and well wishes!

    • Thanks for being so faithful to stop by and see all of our posts. That takes a lot of time and effort. I appreciate it VERY much! 🙂 I am finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and hopefully this illness….yay!
