day 2, 29 faces, september 2015

she started out 

in one direction.

in an attempt to 

will her in another,

i learned that

in the choice between

the will and intuition,

yield to truth.

day 1 of 29 faces

i often start a new piece from paper or a canvas

that was perviously used.  it feels familiar and 

friendly to add paint or watercolor to substrate that 

had a previous life.  the other side of this heavy

watercolor paper is turquoise and embossed from the

imprint of rosemary and   bougainvillea from my yard.  

when i turned the the paper around i saw a lovely, soft

bleed through of color.  i added bits and pieces of tea bag

which matched and created the darker edge of her hair.  then

sketched in a soft face with pencil.   i always like a challenge and 

look forward to 28 more faces this month.  click on the link to
