I’ve finished the challenge! I’m so proud of myself. I’ve never completed an art challenge before. I usual drop it by day 10 or so, but this time I did all 29 faces.

Who is this grumpy woman? It’s me! Only I’m really not grumpy. I’m just looking a little to intensely at my mirror. It doesn’t really look like the beginning of a celebration, does it? But it is.

I traded the 40s Beauty on the right, but I’ve decided to keep the one on the left. I’mContinue reading “Mysterious Ladies”

My neighborhood’s gardens are erupting with new flowers. When I go about my daily walking, all the colors andContinue reading “Black and White in the Green Season”
I’ve been having a wonderful time working on these little cards. I’ve decided to call this young woman Mitzi. I have no idea why. It just seems to be her name. She’s inspired by Louise Brooks and Clara Bow, two of my favorite silent film stars. Mitzi seems audacious and crafty. You know, the typeContinue reading “Meet Mitzi – Another Art Card”
