I'll be honest. Carol Nelson, a gifted artist on DailyPainters.com, is painting 100 faces in 100 days. Her blog followers, under no obligation to buy, were asked to send in their photos to be painted by Carol for her 100-Day challenge. Visit her blog at http://carolnelsonfineart.blogspot.com/, and check out what's she's been doing, I think her paintings are spectacular! Needless to say, I was green with envy. What an incredible idea!
I emailed her to tell her how much I was enjoying her work and to impart my desire to covet her idea. Being a nice person and very generous, she suggested I try the same thing with my floating faces. I think I will.
I'm a little hesitant though. It's like giving a party and wondering if anyone will come, but, I need to break out of this little shell of fear I've been constructing since the little furry Berrys arrived.
So, here I am, announcing the "Floating Faces Challenge." If you'd like your features, or those features of someone you love and or know, floating on a page just email me your snaps. For the purposes of these drawings, full frontal is best. I find three quarter views and profiles don't float all that well. You are under no obligation to purchase the drawing but I'll need permission to display your countenance on my blog. Just mention that you agree to let me draw and publish your likeness in your email.
My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you'd like to send snail mail just e me and I'll shoot over my physical address.
Well there it is. I've sent out the invites, now let's see if someone shows. And thank you in advance for considering attending the party even if you don't.
