Paint Party Friday and 29 Faces in September 2014 and Art Journals Journey

Days 11 & 12 
It's been a rather hectic week here. Crazy weather changes and an extremely early arrival of Fall it appears. There seems to be some major changes going on in the weather patterns these days . 
Had a couple of heath blips to deal with this week too.  Let's just say if you think you had a reaction to a medication... waiting a few days and taking it again isn't the smart thing to do.  The next reaction just might land you in the hospital turning crazy colors and unable to breathe right. Everything is fine now and I have a new item to add to my list of things to NEVER try again. I'm not looking for attention or sympathy  here ..just a warning that if you think you might be allergic to something ...just be safe and avoid it. 
I did manage to stay mostly caught up with all of my art challenges this week so there is a bright side. 
For today I have 2 faces for 29 Faces in September..which are also my items for PPF 
Day 11
...which was also a sketch for Day 9
but she is all new and bright and colorful now.
Day 12
Is a new painting which is also one of the cards for the quote deck I'm working on...
Here's my Random Thought for the day....

  1. Lovely faces, Carol. Whether you want it or not, you do have my sympathy for the reaction to the meds. You never know, do you? They say you can become allergic after years of not being allergic to things. Hope things go better now.

  2. Great faces, I do feel for you with allergy to medication, because I have done the same thing!

  3. Both great faces. Sorry to hear you are in trouble again, lets hope next week is a whole lot better. Happy PPF, Annette x

  4. What wonderful faces. So sorry to hear you aren't feeling well--hope you are better soon.

  5. Wonderful faces and quotes! Love the first face and all the great background texturer..So glad you're on the scary that must have been!! Take care!

    Hugs Giggles

  6. Beautiful faces and quotes again! If you have time, please link them to AJJ, living beings, that would be great! Have a lovely day, hugs, Valerie

  7. Good Morning Carol! Love both faces. Glad you are ok from your med allergy. Medications are a pain to deal with. It is cold this morning.. we had to turn on heat. So much for my September break.. I missed everybody too much!

  8. Oh Carol, that sounds scary .... Glad that you're okay now! And still managing to get some art done .... you're good!! Love both of them. They have such sweet thoughtful expressions on their faces.....

  9. Glad you are better now Carol. Love your ladies and their expressions. Have a great weekend.

  10. Hope you are feeling much much better.
    As wonderful as modern medicine is sometimes the side effects can be devastating.
    Your artwork is wonderful and the turn around quote is brilliant too.
    Greetings from AJJ
