Paint Party Friday and 29 Faces in Sept

I started a whole different piece this morning for PPF...but it just wasn't happening :0( I couldn't concentrate....couldn't draw and just out and out wasn't in the mood for it.
So I decided to work on backgrounds for my journal to see what happened there.
Things went more smoothly there :0) 
After doing several pages I decided I wanted to work on this one. 

I had glued a map of our town and surrounding areas to the page and then colored over it with soft pastels and matte gel medium. 
Then I painted a face in hair or body...just a face floating in the color.
Kind of how I've been feeling the past week....
I let it set for several hours and came back to it. I decided it wanted feathers for hair :0)
I have a nice collection of feathers I've collected while working and playing in the yard...No way was I using any of I arranged several of them on my scanner and then printed them. I tore them off the paper and then glued them down with more gel medium. 
All in all I like it and now that it's done and posted maybe I'll get out of my "fibro funk"  and feel better.   

Maybe if I spent less time drinking wine through a Twizzler  at concerts....

... and more time concentrating on my art..I wouldn't get in these 'fibro funks' 
But the concert and time with my daughter was worth it !!! :0)
