Personal Challenge and 29 Faces Day 1

Okay...I've made excuses.  I've procrastinated.  I've told myself  "I'll start tomorrow...I'll do better once this "whatever" is done...etc."  Its time to put up...or shut up.  Its time to stop being a Wannabee artist and take that step to being a real, working artist.

So...with that in mind, I have set a goal of creating and posting art every day.  I am starting with a challenge called 29 Faces.  The challenge is to draw a face every day in September...a total of 29 with one day wiggle room.  All mediums, styles, etc. so I hope to create a variety, try some new things, improve on my drawing skills and further hone my personal style.

I hope you'll follow along on this journey of mine.  I hope I can make it fun and interesting for you.  I hope I can succeed in my goal of making art every single day and I hope I can reach a point where I feel confidant calling myself an Artist.

Here is my first face.  Its rough and needs a little tweeking, refining and clean up but its a face...and its a start.


  1. What a lovely wide-eyed beauty!

  2. A very cute start to the challenge! This is an adorable face with big, expressive eyes :)

  3. Excellent start! Sometimes just that first step - or, in this case, face - is all it takes to rev up the momentum! Looking forward to seeing more!

  4. What a wonderful start. I joined your blog to cheer you along. Yes you can do it......28 to go.
