a little bit of progress

Where oh where does the time go!?? I cannot believe it is the end of the school year already. A few more days and July will be starting. This year feels like the fastest year ever.

Needless to say I didn't nearly get as much art done as I would've liked. Just a bit of progress in my toilet / bathroom, some sketches and some preparation to finally try and participate again in Colour me Positive.

Here are some glimpses of our toilet:

The swirl on the wall gave me the inspiration for this face. It looked like an eye. Now I'm not sure whether I should leave it like this or give him/her a "real" eye. What do you think?

Next are 2 pages I sketched in marker, all kinds of faces, stylized mosty, which I think I will be using in collage.

And that's it again for this week. Wish I could show you some progress on my big canvas, but alas, no progress at all. In fact I still need to start ....

Linking this to Paint Party Friday! Thanks for visiting, thanks for commenting! I'll finish this post with a few funnies :-)


Wishing you a great day and a happy weekend full of fun! See you next week ♥ ♥ ♥


  1. I like her swirly eye! I think you should keep it, IMHO. LOVE you pages of faces too! ♥♥♥♥

  2. Love your toilet, what a great place to sit and dream! Great faces, too. Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

  3. Wow, that is going to be one fabulous bathroom. Those tiles are coming along great and look gorgeous. Can't wait to see the finished room. :) Erika

  4. I agree, this year is just flying by. Your toilet looks awesome and I love your faces!

  5. Same here. This year is just flying by. I like the eye I would leave it. Can't wait to see your bathroom finished. Have a nice weekend.

  6. oh really nice the second image is my favourite

    happy PPF

    much love...

  7. Love the face just the way it is ♥ The year is zipping by for sure. So many projects left undone here too. :)

  8. Your room is just looking better and better! I too love the face with the swirly eye. Nice grouping of stylized faces. Great funnies too!

  9. Beautiful! Also love your black and white faces.

    Have a great day!

  10. Great painting in the bathroom and lovely drawings. The fun photos are great, especially the one with the pipe.

    Love and hugs

  11. Denise, je zou voor je plezier,bij jou
    naar de wc gaan of lekker in bad liggen dromen
    tussen jou kunstwerk!!
    fijne weekend
    groetjes Christiene.

  12. I just love your humour... but that page of doodled faces is magical!!!

  13. Love the swirl eye...but I think you need to finish the other eye and see if you are satisfied with the swirl still there!! You know what you like... you will be studying it and possibly even change things as you go anyway! Looks gorgeous so far... Love it!! The faces for collage are sooo fun!! What is the writing below the blue face on the wall? Just curious!! I can wait for the big reveal if need be though!

    Hugs Giggles

    1. Thanks Giggles! The writing is my favorite poem from Warsan Shire:
      “later that night
      i held an atlas in my lap
      ran my fingers across the whole world
      and whispered
      where does it hurt?

      it answered

      It was there before I found the face, but I think it fits well with the face ...

  14. Oh Denise! Your bathroom is coming along beautifully!
    I love that you added that poem,so poignant. hugs Jackie
