Face It

OK, it was not easy to come up with a title for today’s post… if I must “face it!”

How do I describe these silly faces?!

They were created from my faces I did on Tuesday and then cut them up and mixed them up to create these new wacky faces!

It kind of reminded me of a meeting I had yesterday with a group of people where I felt totally out of place…  Not because they made me feel this way but because I realized that I didn’t fit into this group.  Have you ever felt this way?

They were all “left brains” and I’m more of a “right brain” thinker…

I realized that it was OK that we are different – we don’t have to ALL think alike…

Or look alike!

Or create art alike!!

Cheers to being different!  🙂

More FUNny Faces

I have been creating more FUNny faces from Lynn Whipple’s online class, “Making Faces.”

I find these silly, colorful faces very FUN to make!

Almost as wonderful as savoring dark chocolate with almonds:

Or soaking in the sun on a beautiful summer day:

Or eating a delicious meal at a favorite restaurant:

Or snuggling with my kitty:

Or laughing so hard that tears come to my eyes:

What makes you smile?!  🙂

I hope you share it with me!

Cheers!  🙂

P.S.  Thursday, I will show you how I cut up these faces and combine them together to create NEW faces.  I hope you will join me! 😊

Making Faces

I’m enjoying Lynn Whipple’s new online art class called, “Making Faces.”  Lynn brings such energy and playfulness to her classes!

This quick sketch I did yesterday with Tombow markers and soft pastels:

If you’d like to learn more about Lynn’s online class go to CarlaSonheim.com

One of the things I enjoy the most about taking online art classes through Carla Sonheim is the friendships I have made through the years.  I learn a ton from the teacher(s) but I also learn from my classmates!  It is an AWESOME experience!! 

Cheers!  🙂

P.S.  Lynn’s class gives me new inspiration for the “100 Day Project” that I’m doing on Instagram.  This is face number 56/100.

Big Bold Blooms 2

I’ve started a new online art class with Lynn Whipple, “Big Bold Blooms 2.”

I love the positive energy that Lynn brings to her classes.  It is a 5-week class so you will be seeing a lot more flowers in my art!  🙂

Perhaps you remember some of my  mixed media flower paintings from her first class – you can find two of them here and here.

I enjoyed doing these simple thumb nail sketches of flowers with Tombow markers:

And then looking for the shadows as you can see in my second photo below:

And a third one I did with an elegant writer pen and Tombow markers and water:

I encourage you to give these a try with a fresh bouquet of flowers!  They are so FUN!

BLOOM where you are planted!  Cheers!  🙂
