Art Journaling-365-A face a day

O.k. my dear blogger friends. Thank you so much for your advice about blogging with one, two or three or a dozen blogs or just one. I have listened and thought about it and decided to keep just this one blog but try to organise it a little better. I am not that good at understanding what WordPress is trying to explain to me about sub-menus etc. but I am giving it a go. Under the ‘About’ page I have (I hope) done sub categories which might be a better filing system and as long as I just do my posts on a single subject at a time it should work. Yeh right! Is there such a thing as me keeping on track???? We shall see…

So this post is just on my art journal of 365 days – a face a day.

For those who haven’t seen the first post on this  book; it was a gift and I just randomly decided to draw a face a day. No pressure, just play and see what happens. As the faces come out day after day I am realising that each one is a story which is an unexpected bonus. They tend to tell me what their name is or what they think of me (when I don’t listen or can’t get things just the way they expect…well…I am far from perfect so they better get used to it or not come out). They are not nice at all sometimes.

On a bit of a serious note, I like creative writing so I am excited that there will be 365 stories if I want to take them further.

Doing something each day is really worth it as long as you don’t put pressure on yourself. You not only get in a few minutes or an hour of deliciousness, which to me is like meditation; you never know what else it might lead to. Do whatever turns you on whether it be art/craft/photography/writing or blacksmithing (just thought I would throw that one in meaning anything at all).

I have stopped rambling so now I would like to introduce you to THE FACES…so far…

  1. Your posts are always fun and inspiring! Love them! And the faces are just amazing! They all do tell a story, they all have character, but I must say I especially love those fantasy kind of faces, maybe because I’m a SF and EF book lover. 🙂 Great job, and keep doing what you do because I love seeing more! 🙂

  2. Really stupendous stuff – – your blogging personna personality reminds me a little bit of the author, Sark… But you’ve got some Dali in there, too. I love Flame and Candice Candle!! Really you’re quite an original!!!!

  3. WaHOOOOOO!!! I love this. Practice as an end in itself is glorious; when the product of the practice is grand, too, that’s the icing on the cake. Beautifully cooked up work here, in every way!

    • Thank you so much for the lovely comment. I was surprised and delighted to find that stories came with the faces, it really is an exciting bonus. Thank you also for your great writings, I enjoy each and every one.
