Day 2 of 100 Painted Faces in 100 days

So here I am on day two, I figure if i keep this up I will just increase my skill for faces. This one seems a bit flat but it's not about perfection for me .. it's an experiment and I think it's going to be a good challenge for me to stay motivated. For sale also .. $2. just message me if your interested.

It's all good. I'm excited just to do it.

Thanks for looking.

100 Faces in 100 days

Ok .. i have been having some rough patches this year and my motivation has been sorely lacking. I have so many varied interests in types of artistic media. I love fabric, I love dying fabric or manipulating it to create weirdness .. i love weirdness. I love the texture of fabric, I love to draw and I love to paint. I love to break the rules.(one's i somewhere learned along the way). I never know for sure where to start where to put all my energy. I love to sew my own clothes. So .. I'm going to try an experiment. I watched a video about an awesome artist that lives in Oregon .. Jolie Guillebeau. on Cory Huff's website Creative Insurgents.  I loved what she had to say about painting after she finished school and wanted to call herself an artist. She decided to paint 100 paintings a day. So that is what i have decided to do also. I posted them first on FB and decided I would go ahead and make myself accountable to everyone here and maybe just maybe i'll be able to get here every day and do the same .. posting every day. To start the challenge off I sat down to paint my one painting and did three.. I will sell each one of these for one dollar for the first day and so on. I am going to go ahead and offer all three at one dollar each. I plan only to do one a day from here on out. I have said I was going to do something or get back to posting more .. for toooooo long and not doing it so .. here goes!!!

 I intend to be as fair as possible and sell them to whomever contacts me first. I'll try to update in the comments if there is anything available or sold ..

If you would be so kind as to share my posting with your friends if anyone wants to follow along on my experiment. Ask them to follow me here. I would be so grateful or follow my facebook page.

I love faces and so this will be fun. These are painted on rusted fabric and are about 9 inches x 9 inches. Drawn with paint markers and acrylic paint. They can be stitched onto something or just left the way they are .. your choice. They make me happy!!!

Thanks for stopping by and do leave a comment to encourage me to keep going. I need the momentum right now .. thank you so much. I am trying to make myself accountable to do what i love. To live the dream that I want to live. Making art every day and making a living at it. Goodness and love to everyone that passes this way ..
