29 Faces in September!

I'm participating in 29 Faces in September! I can't wait to start. Along with Moonshine with Effy Wild, I'm excited to sketch out 29 Faces. What's cool about it is that it's any form, any face, any medium...and you connect with others taking on the challenge! Time to start...See the button on my sidebar for the link.

Folk Art Faces

I'm going to be taking Effy Wild's "Moonshine" starting September 1st and am pretty excited about the entire process. She has a cool portrait style. I'm also considering Tam's Gypsy girl portraits, but the finances say..."Nope" at this time.

Enjoying befriending folks OL and doing a little art journaling. I'm developing some techniques of my own and the folk art portraits I do are so much fun. I wish I was motivated enough to hit the Etsy store hard w/prints and such. I'd also like to get into CafePress and the like. I'm thinking on it. Might not make any $$ but I could enjoy finding out if anyone else likes them. I'd love to share them w/people beyond an occasional blog post.

So, here's the latest. She was a super quick, no-graphite sort of girl...you can easily see the corrections and yes, the fun! Loving the set of Prismas. It's awesome having such a wide range of colors.

She's progressed way beyond this...her face hasn't been finalized though and she has pink/purple hair thanks to Jen Gott who suggested taking her into the realm of fantasy.

Blogging and Books...

So, time to blog...Inspired by Effy Wild and her month of blogging. I can't imagine blogging daily, but I can try. Today was a great day w/the daughter and the grand boy. We went to Mr. K's and I grabbed some books last minute...got an amazing amount of credit. Won $24 on lottery tickets and bought a couple more for the $300 million Powerball. If I win, life will be sublime. Grin. Tough, but sublime.

Rough last 15 for my dear friend Jen. Life sucks and yet is awesome for her. May the Gods bless her this Lammas.

Time for some art...
