Face #8 for 29 Faces

The entire painting


I am taking Annie Hamman's fabulous 
Soulful Story Art online class.
This is my first painting following her guidance. 
 The theme is Threads of My Life.  The photographs
 that I take are strung on a thread, 
my camera is in my hand
 and of course, there is my cat.

#9, 10, 11  and 12

These are some sketches of faces 
that will perhaps turn into ideas 
for some future paintings.

Face # 13
 My second painting in the course.
The theme was Land of Hope.
Somehow it turned rather Gaelic
with the tartan headscarf, tree of life
and ravens.

# 14  Siamese Kitten 
 A break from the people faces.
I love drawing animals.
This one is on a round wooden disk.
I made it for a series of magnets
that I am painting.

One evening we went to the Kemah Boardwalk
 to watch the pretty boats sail in and to see the lights. 
 These photos were taken with my cell phone.  
Ooooooo  Pretty colored lights.
