And since yesterday was the first day, here's my first face: watercolor and marker
A few months ago, I bought an old road atlas in a thrift store, but until now I didn't really know what to do with it. And then I thought I could use it for weird faces with quotes that reflect a bit of what is going on in the world today. I decided to use the lines of the map to "find" faces. This is how it started:
And here's face #2:
I love the effect of the road maps shining through. It's also a really nice size. Might become one of my favorite journals :-)
I also finished the dark background in my painting, and gave it a second coat. The under painting still shines through a bit when you look up close, but I like it better this way. Now I just need to finish the figures, and I can call it done! Hopefully next week.
Lastly I want to share with you a picture of the sunrise last week. It has been really cold here, but the sun was shining almost every day, and this is how it looked when I went out to the car to bring the kids to school in the morning. Isn't it beautiful ?
I'm linking this to Paint Party Friday and to 29 faces. Click on the links and take a look, and maybe even participate yourself!
Thanks so much for all your heart-warming comments last week. I'll continue to share my funnies, and some thought-provoking memes too, because I think it's important that we stay vigilant, now more than ever. But don't worry, there are non-political ones too ;-)
This one might need some explanation: these are elephants that were rescued, I think it was somewhere in Thailand, and the weather was unusually cold, so these women made "coats" for the elephants. Isn't this great!? I love it!
Some to think about ....

And the last one:
