I definitely can feel that I'm in the home stretch with this project. Some thoughts at the moment:
- It's actually AMAZING what you can get done in just 15 minutes. For many years I've been an advocate of dedicating 10 minutes a day to your art journal. I am often met by skepticism. How much can you do in 10 measly minutes?! But, the answer is a lot!
- I'm really glad that I pushed through my desire to quit (and thank you to all of you who encouraged me to continue). I don't have a problem with quitting. If something isn't working for you, you should walk away. But, I feel that my work is getting better through doing this project. And therefore, I felt that I needed to push through the hard stuff.
- I spent some time reviewing the various faces I've made and found myself re-inspired! It's a trick that I've used in art journaling for years. When I'm stuck, I page through an old art journal and it gives me lots of ideas (even if they're ones I've already had).
- For the first time, I worked on a face for more than one day. You'll see that I worked on it in 15 minute bursts for 3 days and then on the 4th day, I cut it up and spent the next few days painting faces on the cut up pieces (you can see a video of this process embedded in my vlog, around the 2:06 mark.)
- I feel like I'm a more confident face maker at this point. I have learned more about how faces are put together from this daily experience. That's exciting. I can see that knowledge revealing itself as faces become easier to create and even abstracted faces have a slightly more realistic feeling!
Without any further ado, here are the faces:
