More paintings…

A while back I decided to take the 100 faces painting challenge.


I know darn well that I never keep up with these sort of commitments.

So I’d only done two up until now.

This one


And this one


But yesterday I fought all day with finishing these


I just started to get really bored with it all even though I know I’ve the art show coming up and need some more jewelry.

So eventually, after a good amount of moping around while eating all the mint humbugs even though they made me feel guilty because they’re really P’s and I stole them, I gave the jewelry up and started another face.


She’s a bit sad.

I might have to change her up a little so she doesn’t look as miserable.

I couldn’t do much with it as even though it hadn’t rained for hours the electricity went out around 5 p.m. and I couldn’t see what colours I was picking up in the dim light.

For a heart stopping moment I almost used a brilliant red for her eyebrows which in my honest opinion just wouldn’t have worked.

Perhaps that’s just me.

In other news I have a confession.

I didn’t get out of bed until 12.30 today


Just couldn’t be bothered.

It’s now 2 p.m. and I still can’t be bothered to do anything.


Even though the face is waiting, and the jewelry pieces are waiting, and, it seems, everything is waiting.

Maybe a cup of tea will do it…

  1. Maybe your ‘face’ is sad because you are sad…maybe you are staying in bed because you’re mind is still processing your grief…don’t worry, just go with it, it will be OK xx

    ps as a Brit, of course tea will help!

      I agree. Tea cures everything 😉

  2. Sometimes a cup of tea is all that will do.

    I like your faces, especially the sad one. Maybe she’s just wistful.

      🙂 Not really Sue. I’m just very persistent…

  4. I love her sort-of sad face just the way it is! She is beautiful. Sad is perfectly acceptable, and truly all who look on her can identify. I am glad that you are obeying your gut and not trying to force yourself to be “productive.” You have been wounded by the loss of your dad, and sometimes the best thing for a wound is to just hibernate a bit. Your gut will tell you when it’s time to pick up the brush/torch again!

    She’s sad because she didn’t get any of those mint humbugs! BUT… deserved those mint humbugs so throw that guilt by the wayside. You take care of yourself and if that means staying in bed until 12:30, well…so be it.

      I’ve finished the whole bag now 🙂

  6. She is not sad, to me…she is reflecting and quite pensive. You are so stinking multi-talented lady!

    It takes time to heal…TAKE IT!

  7. Sad happens, and you just lost your Dad! And she is beautiful. Take it easy on yourself, and no guilt trips on sleeping late. 🙂

    I amazes me just how much talent you have stored in you:-) It’s ok to stay in bed late. You have had so much on your plate these past few months. Things will change and you will be back in your studio getting all caught up with making jewelry and painting and embroidery and so on!!! A cup of tea will always help:-)

  9. Getting out of bed when you’re heartbroken can be downright stupid. I know. You could endanger your health. So have that cup of tea, maybe read a book. And get up when you can face everything. You’ll get there, eventually. (For being down and unproductive, you are doing a lot, I have to say!)
