Passions of an Odd Chick

Winter snow brings out the art journal.

Out my front door

It's  a little cold over here in southeastern New Mexico. We've had snow on the ground
for 6 days which is unusual for us.
My Sweet Farmer is almost good as new. Thank you for your kind wishes in the comments.

I'm enjoying my journal again. Did I mention that I ♥ faces. It doesn't seem to matter whose or what face it is. I think I'm into drawing personalities, emoting feelings from their eyes, the position of their chin, etc. They seem to come alive in my journal and look back at me. In a way, I guess I'm still playing paper dolls, only with paints and pencils. It's still an imaginary world where my mind plays creatively, yet keenly. It's like a great dessert for my brain.

Which face is your fav?

notes from a sermon on Psalm 23

my idea of a Venice carnivalle costume
i loved creating this one with only a pencil, black gesso and blue paint. 
Hey guess what?? "Yellow Goat" sold from the "Gallery" in Roswell.. I will miss him but I'm glad someone liked him enough to take him home.

Great journal pages, very nice work. Glad to hear that your sweet farmer is doing better. Happy Holidays to you and it sure does look cold over there, but very beautiful.

You do have such an intuitive way
with faces!
I love all of them.
And those cows in snow...
so beautiful.
Happy for the frosting
on your lawn.
And GLAD in a big way
for your hubby's speedy recovery!
Peace. December peace,

I love the idea of playing and pretending and creating all rolled into one :) .... Faces are a challenge to me, unless it's an animal. Animal faces are my favorites ... Like your yellow goat. How sweet to adopt her out and feel good about it :)

Happy Christmas and Merry New Year!
