FACE NO 1 FOR 29 FACES

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1st  -  NO 1

"MO, THE BLUE MOSAIC GIRL"
Mixed Media painting - Jez
Mo is feeling a little sad and blue
 because she has not yet managed to meet the mosaic man of her dreams, 
but she is sure he is out there somewhere.

Martha at Ayala Arts, who has set the February '29 Faces' challenge, has suggested that we should try something new for each face if we can.  Well, at the start of last September's '29 Faces' I set myself a personal challenge to use a different method or medium or approach every day.  I managed it, but I'm not sure that I can find another different 29 approaches for this month.

I have decided on a slightly different personal challenge this time.  I'll provide some faces in different styles as I did last September ………. but I will take myself out of my comfort zone from time to time.

The montage below shows all the faces I created for last September's 29 Faces, and to see them all collected together like this made it worth while even though it was quite a challenge.  Here's hoping that I feel just as pleased at the end of February.

I hope you will come back to visit me - and it makes me very happy if you are kind enough to comment.  And I look forward to visiting as many other 29 Facers as I can to enjoy your 'faces'.

  16. I love your montage. What a cool way to show what you did and how your style fluctuates through the medium you used. This mosaic girl is so creative and well executed. I love that you left the hair white... it gives a nice balance to the whole piece.

  21. Jez I am glad you are taking part in the 29 faces again and it so lovely to see all last year's faces together. I hope I can keep up with it I am not feeling too good since day one so not a good start for me bu t I guess that will make all the easier when I am better. This first lady is gorgeous and it looks like she must have taken you forever to draw her. ManonX
