Back from the Twilight Zone...

Found my paints (yep we fell out), art desk & got my brushes in hand... and excited to be a part of 29 Faces in September :) Thanks to Martha who energetically hosts this mini marathon :) It's been so long since I've posted but I hope to keep up & also visit all the other participants who have accepted the challenge over the month of September! Had to put a 'phone a friend' (thanks Memphis) who took time out of uni studies to remind me how to post separate pages on my blogspot (yep it's been that long)!!

I'll be updating on my 29 Faces page daily (see tab above) or click HERE to check out the growing collection as the month progresses (I'll post 'full face images on this page) & thanks so much for dropping by, I've missed you all!!

Well... here goes nothing with...
Day 1 - Green Goddess 'Jade'

Day 2 - Green Goddess 'Emerald' (detail-for full face click 'page' link above)

Day 3 - Green Goddess 'Cloe' (detail-for full face click 'page' link above)


Day 4 - Pastel Pencil - Recycled 'Rose'

Day 4 - Paint on canvas-board - 'Watching Dawn'

Your faces are truly beautiful. I love the close-up, not only to see the detail of the beauty, of the layers, but to see some of your color and brush-work. ::sigh::

Oh my beautiful Aussie goddess, how wonderful to see you have returned, and...OMG!!! This set of "Green Goddess" art is surreal and breathtaking. The eyes remind me of diamond sparkles within the soul, and the lips, full and lush. You are amazing and I have missed you so, sweet friend. Warmest hugs, Mina
