Faces faces faces

I had forgotten how the 29 faces challenge tends to overtake my life. While I find it do-able to make some art every day, actually finishing a new piece every day is pretty much impossible for me to do for longer than 1 month. We're over halfway now and I know I'll breathe a sigh of relief when it's finished, but at the same time I know months like these give me lots of new stuff to work with. Which is why I do it.

So on we go! Here are the faces from the last 7 days:

Face #10: markers

Face #11: sketch

Face #12: another roadmap-face, with an excerpt from this beautiful poem about refugees called "Home" by Warsan Shire

Face #13: marker and graphite

Face #14: watercolour

Faces #15 and #16 (and maybe # 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 too!): found a lot of smaller faces in my roadmap-journal, I will count these now as 2 faces, but if I get behind in the following days I might count them all as a separate face ;-)
Another excerpt from that same poem by Warsan Shire, because they reminded me of refugees ....

That's it for this week! Linking to Paint Party Friday and to 29 faces. Hop on over there to see some great work!

I hope you're having a great day! Thanks so much for your visit! I'll finish with some funnies :-)

And some to think about ....

Enjoy your weekend! I'll be back next week ♥ ♥ ♥


  1. LOVE your faces! The hair on #11 is phenomenal! (I struggle so much with hair!) And as always, your 'funnies' made my day! :)

  2. great hair on them all :)(well the ones you can see the hair)love coming here and seeing all the colours you use, brightens up the day :)

  3. such fabulous faces Denise! They all have a lovely quality and emotion in their expressions and I love that.
    Always good to have a laugh along with some sentiments to ponder too.Happy PPF and happy weekend!

  4. Fabulous hairstyles! Wonderful refugee impressive! If only everyone had the compassion that you do!Love your faces so gorgeous! Always wise funnies! Thanks for putting your beautiful soul into this post!

  5. Gosh I love your faces so much. I was trying to pick a favorite...but I couldn't, they're all so different but so wonderful! Happy PPF!

  6. Your faces are wonderful, and those with the quotes are very touching. Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

  7. Hello Denthe, how gorgeous and luxurious the eyelashes on face #10. The hairstyles are totally lovely, very very beautiful.
    Your roadmap face artworks really touched my heart as they accompanied those powerful words from Warsan Shire.
    The watercolour face is marvellous and, thank you so much for the funnies and the thoughfuls.
    Happy wishes for PPF 🌻xx

  8. your faces are absolutely FABULOUS. I so totally admire you for doing this challenge, I can't draw faces to save my life and a month of them would put me into suicidal situations, LOL. I know what you mean about obsessing when you're doing an "1 art per day" challenge as I do one in November. Oh, and by the way, thank you for the hilarious joke about what to eat for dinner, lol. I totally relate as I'm on a very strict diet AND I have celiac, lol. Damn, the ice looked delicious. ;o) visiting from PPF!

  9. I adore your faces both sketches and watercolour.
    Thanks for funnies and wise words of mr. King.
    Happy PPF xx

  10. Denise,
    I absolutely fell in love with the sketched face and then when I read the words on the map piece, I fell in love with that one as well...then looking back over each face, I realize, I just love them all! I am such a fan,of both you and your art!
    <3 love & hugs,Jackie
    love the Meryl Streep poster~she is only "over rated" to the narcissists who say so!

  11. I am in 29faces too. I was just thinking what you wrote today. I love this Challenge every year, and I actually draw while I lay in bed at night. Your faces are amazing and so unique. The watercolor girl was really pretty and interesting. A little more than halfway to go, yes, and I know when it ends I will miss it! Happy PPF and have a GREAT week! Hugz, Rasz

  12. Gorgeous faces denthe! #11 is my favorite. She's just perfect. Happy PPF!

  13. Some really nice faces. Good for you. I have fallen behind with my February face challenge.

  14. Hi we are back from out trip. I had to come see what you have been creating. Love all the faces. I wish I could come watch you create. Your faces are so light and delicate with great expressions. The road map faces are just genius. Have a great week.

  15. Oh my gosh - I LOVE your road map faces!! They are so beautiful, and somehow mysterious, like they have a dramatic story to tell! I love all your work, but those babies are outstanding! :)

  16. Your art work is terrific! The road map work is great.
