PAINT PARTY FRIDAY~~~~~ on Saturday this week. :(

Where has my week gone? 
It started out creative and full of energy and then just disappeared into a fog.
I see and feel glimpse of it here and there but just can't get a hold of it . 
 But some art was done. 
For Colour Me Positive I refined  my self portrait that I did in 29 Faces and added words. 
  I also added background colors to a couple of the other faces from 29 Faces that I want to paint. 

.... and I worked on the General Custer painting for my husband's birthday gift. 
This one is giving me difficulties as there aren't any color photo's of him. They didn't exist then. So it's hard for me to get the shadings right . 
I have another week to work on it. 
In the mean time the warmer days we have now and then are drawing me outside. :) 
So that is where I am headed now. 
Much to do to clean up the messes made by winter.  
Today's Random Thoughts

Thanks for stopping by !


  1. The portrait is looking really nice - great hair and features! And I am looking forward to the finished paintings you've just added backgrounds to - they are both really cool, particularly the dark blue one!

  2. Wonderful art this week, I especially love your self portrait!
    Have a nice weekend, hugs, Valerie

  4. Stunning self portrait I LOVE it... you need to put that on your side bar or as your's truly the gift your doing for hubby too... coming along beautifully! Great post!

    Hugs Giggles

  5. great sketches Carol and i think your General Custer in color is super!

  6. You are busy. I really like the selfie. I think painting yourself is difficult, any way for me.
    My DH birthday is the month as well. Have a great Sunday.

  7. Lots of art you have going on, Carol. General Custer is awesome! Oh the great weather we have been having, a bit blustery though!
