Church Of The Pointed Hats

Still on my mission, of face creating. I've really got the bug now. Although, this hand is holding me back a bit, I will call tomorrow and see if I can get into the Dr. earlier than Sept. 8th. As I am sure you have noticed, I think most every face has a religious theme to it. Why, you might ask? I have no idea, other than to say I collect religious ephemera maybe. I am fascinated by it, in fact I have a whole wall devoted to it. I really am not dedicated to any one religion, but I do love religious art!

She Does Believe

I have been having alot of pain in my right hand these last few days, so it's been slow going. Having some testing done so hopefully I will know something soon. Here's my latest art though!

Crooked Cross- I will Survive

I am still plugging away, drawing, painting, using watercolor pencils, pastels or anything else I can get my hands on trying to perfect my faces! It's a slow process, I must say. I am not a quitter, so on I go. I do know that I am still drawn to the funk part of drawing, the unusual artists, the people who do all the things the traditional teachers, books and tutorials say not to!

Faces Of Whimsy

I call these Faces of Whimsy because after drawing my first face or was it a cat, I had to take some harsh criticism from a drawing teacher, that taught at the same Art Center I did. She was about 75+ maybe and she could not fathom the idea that I wasn't looking for realism, I was looking for funk and whimsy. When I first started teaching collage there, they thought I was whacked anyway, they just didn't get me. You see I live in a small town and that was many years ago now. I don't think they teach any collage there now, but I think they have a lot of plein air painters there though. To each his own!
