Friday Face OFF

Today is Friday Face Off and I invite you to show off your art face. Only one rule, your post hast to feature a face, human, alien, or animal. It can be in any art medium.
Yesterday was our trip to Salem. Not a bad trip if you like rain, hail, wind and slow driving tourists. LOL Actually it wasn't too bad. 
I am very tired so this will be short and sweet.
Do you remember this guy? He is made of air dry clay and painted with pastels.
Here is where he lives now.
Some close ups. The fabric is really beautiful
This gold beetle was given to my by Donna Z. It goes perfectly with the design. The curly plant is dried black bean skin from last year. It is so cool
In addition here are a few of my drawings.


This is our second week of Friday Face Off and I want to share one of the FFO faces.
This is created by the talented Gene Black.
Yes a quilted face
Note. For some reason Mr. Linksy is not working for some. I have to change the link so you may have to rejoin. Also, if you are having trouble leave my your link in the comments and I will put it in manually for you.
So Sorry.


  1. You certainly know how to put an expression on a face, Nicole!

  2. I love where your clay face ended up...very nice faces!

    WOW, Gene's quilted face looks amazing!

    I joined in for this week — I hope I did it right.

    Have a wonderful weekend! x

  3. Nice faces Nicole. I love how you colored in just enough to give the pieces some surprise, like the man with the blue eyes. Wow! And is your gold beetle really a beetle? It looks like a bumble bee to me, but I'm not an expert on beetles. Happy Friday. hugs-Erika

  4. I really love your finish with the clay face. The drawings are great.

  5. Hi Nicole,
    sorry, but I cant leave my URL. I've tried also with Android. I have accepted cookies, but it doesn't help.

  6. Erika, maybe it is a bee? LOL Either way I love it.
