29 Faces (well 6 & 7 from a slacker) & WOOHOO it's P.P-FRIDAY

Joining for a record SECOND TIME this month (call the Guinness Book of Records)... I am posting in Paint Party Friday (with the sweeties Eva & Kristin as hosting) which ALSO overlaps with my still in, but puffing & falling swiftly behind like a 3 legged racehorse in the Melbourne Cup, the AWESOME '29 Faces in September' Challenge... hosted by the ever energetic Martha (AyalaArt)... My sweetie Memphis (MangaMem) is also in the Challenge & texts me in-between lectures at uni while standing inline at the Dumpling House with touching mother daughter texts such as "DO A FACE..."
Mmmm, short & sweet ;) So yes 2 more below, & Memphis is home for the weekend, so expect MORE Faces from yours truly as she takes time out from her essay writing to force me to my art desk to catch up (if only I wasn't so easily distracted), & don't forget, not too late to join 29 Faces, all levels welcome!

Day 6 "Pretty in Pink"





























Day 7 "Deer Me"
MangaMem suggested a limited palette & I loved working with black, white, emerald green & a beige...





























...there was to be a small bird perched nibbling at a spider in it's web spun on sprouted horns, but it remains the ghost of an idea, just pencil whispers remain.
Thanks for dropping by & let's have a creative weekend all!

If you'd combine these two awesome paintings, you'd get me, looking not so awesome with this flu...pink eyes and grayish green skin :D

"Pretty in Pink" makes me think of Edith Piaf in her street urchin days.

Memphis knows her mama!

Love both pieces. The almost hidden smile of "Pretty in Pink" makes me want to grin, too. And "Deer Me" is a hoot!

The faces are simply great... Fabulous shape and structure to them and then the lovely brush work over the top... I love the melbourne cup reference... Made me giggle and think I will be using that one myself now...

Wow I love your faces. The first one with the texture just brings it out. However the second one is my fave. Very nice indeed
