hints of autumn


my son says i am haunted by the same face.  it strikes me as an interesting comment.  i began looking at others artist's work and noticed his comment was pretty accurate.  but why? maybe an inner search for an alter ego, maybe a secret voice calling, maybe a guardian angel image as i sleep, but it is true i tend to create similar faces, not quite adult looking, still with a hint of innocence.
i am linking today to a fascinating challenge  at 29 Faces Challenge
i have already found some very interesting new artists.

looking back, i think i've already painted 29 faces, but since most of them have flown to new homes, it doesn't feel like it.  they are no longer with me and once in a while i need to look back on them and wonder...did i really paint them?

I just took a quick peek at your artwork. How very lovely, indeed. Very inspiring, and gentle. I will have to stop by more often.

Have a great day!

Hi, Thank you for visiting my blog. I have had a peek at yours too and I am blown away with your faces!!! Most of my faces turn out similar, perhaps it is our unique style taking shape? Enjoy 29 faces. Clare.

Earlier I didn't comment on the fantastic large number of beautiful faces you posted after the one you are including for the 29 faces. I love your style. Thanks for your nice comments on my Word Art Wednesday post.
