Passions of an Odd Chick

Sunday, January 23, 2011


 Well, my peeps, I've got it done! I told you I was going to make 20 faces and I have finished. No. 20 is the same size as No. 19 so they could hang as a pair. Only 3 weeks before my show- nothing like waiting until the last minute- but I wanted to make them with my heart and not just my hands and sometimes my heart just wasn't in it. Just knowing that I put the dream out there to make 20 pushed me through it. RELENTLESS- remember is my word for this year! It feels good to have accomplished the goal, and relief.

Now I could really use your help. I have posted all 20 of the faces from "She Speaks For Herself" series and now I would like for you to review them and tell me which 3 are your favs. Your opinion really matters to me and I have made some cards and am curious if I have chosen the right ones.  You can click on the collage to get a better view. Can I just tell you again how much I have appreciated your comments and encouragement!

We LOVE them all, but the girls and I did choose the three we liked the best~ They were shouting out numbers behind my back and we finally settled on 2,17 and 20! Great Job :)

You did it..I wish I could get on my magic dragonfly and enjoy your show..My fav's or 9,10,11...
So what is next? LOL.

Steve Emery said...

9, 10, and 19 are my favorites today... The problem is that I also love 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 16, and 18. So this was tough.

19 and 20 show a step forward, I think, with the larger scale and the additional detail. I'm glad you've stayed painterly with these.

Good luck with the show! Exciting and scary and wonderful.

Congrats. 'Relentless'ly pursuing your dreams is such a brave and couragous thing. I love that you have finished them all. There great. My favs are 19#- she's gorgeous, her pink hair is cheeky and adventurous. She is making her suroundings that much more beautiful, 10# she's fiesty, gutsy and has funky. 5# her eyes are piecing and can look straight into your soul. Their great! I hope your show is just amazing.

Bren said...

Congrats! It's been so great following you as you created these amazing women. To choose just three well that's killer! I think you're going to find it widely varied when it comes to choosing fags. #1, 19 & 20 with 5 & 12 in hot pursuit.

Diane said...
