Working on my painting

No map face today! I have a market this weekend and I have been busy with that. Plus the doodle from last week gave me fresh inspiration for my painting, and I couldn't wait to try it out. While I'm still contemplating some parts of the painting, I decided to finish the faces today. Here are some progress pics:

 I also started another doodle :-)

I hope I'll be able to finish my painting next week. Can't wait to work on it again, but this weekend I will be too busy....

I also have a mapface more or less finished, but I didn't write the text yet, and it's getting too late and I need to go to bed. I'll show it to you next week!

Many thanks for visiting me here! If you want to see more, go visit Paint Party Friday. Lots of art on display there!

I'll finish with some funnies :-)

And the ones to think about ....

That's it for this week! Have fun today and enjoy your weekend! I'll be back next week! 
Take care ♥ ♥ ♥

doodling again

Well, after spending an entire afternoon painting on my large canvas, deciding that I hated it and removing all I had done, I decided to leave it alone for now. It's sitting on its easel next to my desk, and I look at it every time I'm doing something there, so I'm sure one of these days I'll know how to continue. Sometimes you just have to be patient ....

Meanwhile, I started doodling again. I don't even remember when the last time was that I did that. I used to doodle while I was waiting for my daughter to finish her gymnastics-training, and when I was sitting on my daughter's bed at night. But we don't do that anymore, somehow we've grown out of it, and now it seems as if I never doodle anymore.

Until now, that is :-) Here's my first doodle of 2017!

This week has been rather depressing considering all that's happening in the world. It feels as if war is coming closer every day and I'm getting so fed up with the moronic leaders of some countries. They're like children fighting, which would be okay (well, maybe not ....) if only they didn't have grown-up toys.  I can't believe how many of these assholes are now in leading positions in the world. How has it ever come this far? I wish they would just drop dead, the lot of them. The world would surely be a safer place then. So my map face this week is influenced by this:

But I've got good news too! Last Friday I received 2 adorable ATC's from Sal Scheibe. They're gorgeous, with bright colours just the way I like them. Sal is so talented, I'm always in awe when I visit her blog and see her work. Look at them!

Thanks so much Sal!

Linking to Paint Party Friday, follow the link if you want to see what people around the world created this week :-)

I need funnies more than anything right now. So here are some:

And of course some wise ones too ...

That's it for this week! Thanks so much for being here! Enjoy your day, and I wish you a weekend full of fun, love, kindness and without worries. See you next week ♥ ♥ ♥

slow going ....

Didn't get much art done this week. I'm a bit stuck with my painting, don't know how to proceed, and every time I have some ideas and try them out, I hate what I've done and remove it again. Guess I'll have to sleep on it a bit more :-)

I did manage a new map face. With a poem from one of my favorite authors Warsan Shire, that I've used a few times in my art already, but I never tire of it and it expresses so beautifully (and achingly) the state of the world today. Here it is:

I did paint two more birds on my painting:

Now the only thing I need to figure out is how to finish it ....

I told you last week that I made a present for friends of mine that were getting married. We went to the bridal party last weekend, so I can show you now what I made :-)

I should've made a picture of the rock in my hand, because it was really big, bigger than my hand. But this is the only picture I have.

I'm going to link this to Paint Party Friday tomorrow. Now it's off to bed, since it's after midnight already. But first it's time for some funnies :-)

And the ones to think about ....

Thanks so much for your visit! Wishing you lots of plain old fun today, and a wonderful loving weekend! See you next week ♥ ♥ ♥
