the final face!

 What an awesome experience the 29 Faces challenge has been!

 At the beginning I felt a bit discouraged
 thinking it was way over my head;
but my fellow artists kindly encouraged me to continue.
It was creatively stimulating seeing all the
unique  faces and styles of art while stretching my wings.
But I think my favorite part was
connecting with other artists through our blogs!
.........
Well without further delay on to the final face!

For quite awhile I wanted to attempt a self portrait
but I also wanted to incorporate my artwork within
it & digital photography seemed to be a way of doing that.
A portion of one of my  abstract collages
 is seen in the foreground .




Thank you so much Alaya for hosting this challenge &
to each and every visitor for every encouraging word.
 I hope we stay in touch through our blogs!!

    1. Hi Molly! It's so nice to see you here again. Thank you :) I'm not surprised that you are a wee bit behind after all you just opened up your shop on etsy! I find it difficult to create, manage a shop do the social thing AND blog!! something always suffers. But we sure had fun doing this challenge! Oh since i'm not on google + i'm following via email :)
