Face 21 - Inheriting Grandmothers Necklace

When a Grandparent passes away its nice to have something other than memories to hold to. My grandmother was a quilter which was something she taught me to do. I also have some of her handmade quilts.

Face 20 - Acting Hood

I don't understand young African Americans with both parents at home living in a nice suburban home want to act like they are from the hood.

Face 18 - The Matador

Face 17 - The Couple

So I tried something different, at least for me. It took more time to create.

My husband called to see what I was doing, I didn't say this: CREATING.

I tried to correct the hair. It looked like I drew it with a micron pen.

Face 15 - Disappointed

So I didn't like face 14, so I'm not going to post it here. Visit my other blog to see it. My husband is getting upset that I'm being so tunnel vision about what I'm doing.

Face 13 - Glance

No housework done today. It's getting bad, I didn't even make my bed. However when art in flowing through me I must create.

Face 12 - In My Thoughts

My house is becoming very messy and laundry is plying up. I care but I must create. Once again this is what I did before going to work.

Face 11- African Beauty

So when I finally got home after chaffeuring daughter around for after school activities I decided not to do the housework I've should have done this morning. I went to my art. This is what I did.

Face 10- The Look

I was unable to create any art this weekend because of my childrens activites, so I left my housework undone this morning and created this before I had to go to work. Next week my schedule will change and I won't have any time after my family leaves for school and work. My husband asked me how and I'm going to handle that? I don't know! I love this time that I can do as I please.

IF: Spooky

Hazel the witch tried to be spooky, but it was not within her to be so.
Not that spooky, but I think it fits the theme.

Face 9 - African in the Night

I couldn't get the lighting the way I wanted it and her face doesn't look as natural as I intended. This is my critique.

Face 8 - Regrets

So little time to create. My art for today.

Corrections to Face 7

I made corrections to what I thought was wrong with Face 7. I think it looks a little better.

More practice on faces. The eyes and nose need some work.

I don't think her eyes are right.

Face 5 - A Sad Remembrance

Sometimes old thoughts and memories invade our minds. We are taken to a sad place as though it happen the very first time.

Here's a closer look.

Face 4 - Angry

Despite everything that is going on in my life I must find time to create. So I didn't do my daily chores this morning. I create this. I usually don't illustrate me. I don't know why. So I need to broaden my horizons.

Face 3

My challenge for myself was to work on faces,but my schedule has been so busy I've only completed 3. I'm not really happy with this one.
