A Portrait a Day For August....

You know me....I can't resist a challenge! Even though I'm doing the index cards for the month of August, I also decided to join in on Violette's portrait a day challenge. It seemed rather serendipitous since I had painted a face yesterday on August 1st. So here is my first portrait/face....


I painted her on an old map. I'm not completely happy with her but she's one more day of practice for me. I haven't started the face for today but I have some ideas.

I spent the morning at the salon where I get my hair cut. Angel has asked me to display some of my art so I took some things over to get her approval. She just moved into a new studio style shop and has some blank walls to fill up. When I get everything up and ready I'll take some photos and show you how it looks.

Okay, I'm off to create some new art! I hope your day is creative and fun....

  9. I'm so amazed how you just DO things.
    I did decide this for myself even before I read your post and have made my 2 faces so far. I love your first one and the way she holds her face. You do this so well and I'm so glad to be able to follow your process. Exiting!!

  11. Can't wait to see the shop wall when you get your art hung.
    Using the map for a background is a good idea and the words complete it.
