Day 15 of 100 faces in 100 days

Well .. I know it is most likely redundant to repeat how excited I get when I finish a painting. I find that trusting the process is such a valuable method for me. If I quit when i get so far .. i can surely say that I think .. aaaacccckkkkk .. this looks ........uhhh not so good. But .. i keep going .. painting, adjusting on and on and then the little details get me excited. Then I find myself giggling around the room. I just feel great getting it to the point it's gotten too. No doubt that point will change but it's the daily practice that I know will show me the magic. I just decide then at some point .. it's good. I love the wrapping paper designs peeking through. I know you can't really tell but some of the papers are metallic. Some of the papers are textured.
It's fun to break the rules I've imposed on myself over time with respect to making art. If your inclined to make art .. practice breaking the rules. You may not even know that you have them. So .. I'm happy again!!!!  Yayyyyy ....

But I have to get so .. this will be short and I am quite certain that I will have more stories to tell in the future. I do have 85 more days to go .. wooo hooo!!! Thank you for following me and I've noticed that FB doesn't always show my stuff but if you want to be sure to follow just come here .. i hope to develop this as I go .. it's a learning process for me. Have a fantastic wonderful happy day!! I will.


  1. Yes today's painting is also for sale for $15. to the first person who emails me or leaves me a comment here that they want it. The size of this is about 8.5" x 11" not a perfect rectangle. Sewn wrapping paper and acrylic paint. :)

  2. Ahhh Tammy, I love how the colours (and texture) of the wrapping paper is seeping through the paint !

    1. I love that part too !!!! I so enjoy the texture as well .. it gets me all giddy lol ...

  3. I can't decide which I like more - the faces on paper or the ones you were doing on fabric. I know I would definitely be excited if I could paint faces like these!
