Face #14...and Some Snail Mail Goodies

It feels good to be caught up with the faces. I'm always a day behind in posting but that's okay. Here is the face I did last night...

I saw a photograph online of a girl with hair like this and I knew I had to draw it. I did some fast chalk pastel on her but she needs more help. I think I might like to do a larger version of this...she's only about 4" x 4"...if I do I'll paint her rather than use the pastels. She's a bit orange!!

I've also been getting some great things in the mail.

Laila and I did an ATC swap and these are the cards she sent.
I love them...thanks, Laila!

Andria and I traded bookmarks and she also sent
this great stitched heart.
Beautiful...thanks, Andria!

And this is a gorgeous postcard I received from 
Karen ...I wish you could see this in person.
There's so much texture on this card.
It's great...thanks, Karen!!

That's all for now. It's a beautiful sunny day with highs expected in the upper 60's so I think my son and I are getting out to do some thrift store shopping. I like looking for things I can use in the studio. We both like rummaging through old stuff looking for "treasures"...I'll show you if I find anything good.
