Portland Corner One - by Carol Engles
PERSPECTIVES-SANTA FE by Santa Fe Artist Annie O'Brien Gonzales
I'm all the way to #20! If you've been keeping up and counting my faces, you'll notice one is missing. That would be a digital image that I haven't uploaded from my tablet just yet. You know, technology.
So far I'm nine faces into the 29Faces challenge! I'm a few behind, but I'm hoping the weekend might be kind to my creativity. Can you guess which one is my favorite?
It is now week 2 of the 29Faces challenge, and I have to admit it has definitely been a challenge, My subject of choice is usually much more abstract, and either a tree or a skyline, or even the moon and stars. So, when I tell my brain that we are going to draw a face and not a group of purple trees, my brain does this rebelling thing for a bit, and then gets to work. Some of the results of last week's let's-draw-faces-and-not-trees arguments are below:
Also, in keeping with my personal challenge and promise to make more art this year, I finished two small acrylics on canvas this weekend, I haven't named them yet, other than the tree one and the building one. They need better names.
It's the beginning of the month, which means it's Theme Week on eBay, sponsored by the ACEO (Art Cards,Editions and Originals) Group. For about a week, there will be quite a number of listings showcasing the current theme, which is Woodland/Woodland Creatures. The pieces are in a variety of styles and media, from acrylic abstracts to whimsical pencil drawings. These original art cards are listed at various prices so there is art for for every budget.
We are in day two (2) of the February 2016 29 Faces Challenge! I have begun my journey and hope to be very much improved in my portrait drawing by the end of the month! Stay in touch for pics and progress!
We are now in the 2nd full week of the new year, and so far I've accomplished not being tempted by chocolate once. My new year's resolutions are going great. Oh also - I haven't created in a quite a while - apparently I'm in a bit of an art rut.
In the meantime, I've browsed the information highway for bits and pieces of inspiration, and I hope maybe what I've found gives your creativity a little boost as well.
Convergence Part I is complete - see how land, water and sky seem to be one? That's at least what I see when I look at it - you may see something completely different. After all, that's really the wonderful thing about art. We all look at it and interpret it in our own way.
Here's another beauty from last week - untitled as of yet. I think it needs a happy, spring-like name.
Oh - and I'm sure you're wondering- preparations for what?
It's time for 29 Faces! So, all during the month of September, watch this page for a new face!
I am a self-taught artist, using my creative and sometimes bizarre mind to come up with colors, shapes and scenes and transferring them from my my mind to a canvas or piece of paper. I love to experiment with different styles, colors, media and shapes in my artwork, so you might find me listing acrylics one week, watercolor the next, and then a mixed media collage after that. I create art because I love it - it makes me happy. I'm here to share that enjoyment with others.
