Friday Face Off 7/1

 Hi Everyone!

Can you believe it's July 1? It just feels like the days are going by wAy too fast.
AS some of you know I am fighting with lupus right now. It's been a long while since he has decided to NOT play nice with me. 
Even though, I have been drawing but I don't have anything finished for you. If you walk through my house there is a face in one medium or another hanging on the walls or sitting on shelves. Wanna see some?
The drawings are under glass and easier to show with stored photos



 Sculpted leather female

 and male.

 Gourd face

 Leather on acrylic

Acrylic 16x24" and sold many years ago. OK this one is not hanging on my wall. LOL

 This drawing is my first commission piece.

 Sculpted leather.

 I love this old man.

 I have several of this type of paintings. I love the effect.

I do draw animal faces too.

 The next three are the goofy gourd head family.



 Real teeth on this one.

 This painting is from one of my drawings.


Here is my featured artist this week.
I am also linking with 
Now it's your turn. Show me a face in any medium, of any kind of face.
Wishing you all the very best day.

You are a great artist, Nicole. Love everyone of your stunning 'exhibition' of art today.
I didn't know what lupus is, and googled. It looks very aching in the skin, and addition is an autoimun illness. I hope you get rid of it soon!
Wishing a happy weekend xx

Your creations are awesome. Your leather pieces intrigue me and you’ve got me thinking about what I might do with the dry gourds I have. Fun!

I love that you never stick to one medium. These are all great. I am always impressed with your faces, Nicole.

Hi Nicole: I left a comment for you yesterday, and it seems to have disappeared. Maybe this one will stick, but the same thing is happening with Andrea and I have no way of letting her know. If you see this message could you do that for me, please. These issues with Blogger are so frustrating! Thanks. David
