Welcome To Friday Face OFF (FFO)

This is the place to show off your faces or your face. Post any type of face from any medium. You can create it, or find it in nature, or even that face in the design of woodwork in your house. Human, animal, alien, or monster. Any kind of face.

I started to sketch this week but again concentration was difficult so forgive the drawing. Not sure where I was going with this. LOL

And a few AI pieces.







Now for the featured artist......

TADD with Rain

 Hi Everyone!

Today I'm joining TADD with Rain.
Her theme this week is, Pockets. OK, I will go with that.
I was going to start with the Kangaroo but decided to go with the Possum.
in Mammals

do possums have a pouch

So do possums really have a pouch? (Pocket) Yes, possums are marsupials and they do have a pouch. It is just that their pouch is not easily visible as that of other marsupials. Though the pouch of a Possum may not be as big or visible as that of a Kangaroo, it is an important part of their reproductive system. 

The female possums give birth to their young that are hardly the size of a peanut. These newborn babies are not fully developed as one would expect them to be. These young and helpless babies have to somehow find their way into their mother's pouch. It is inside this pouch, where they grow up receiving all the nutrition & warmth they need.

More pockets

Pita Bread=pocket

 Twice baked potatoes=pocket

 The dreaded pocket by your tooth

 Critters make pockets under the ground

Finding a pocket of air, ya know when you are cave diving.

 Don't forget a mouth is a pocket.

Well that's it for now.
Be sure to join me tomorrow for

You know how weird I really am and I enjoy seeing strange and wonderful art.
I have 4 today, because I have to get dressed and drag myself to the dentist. uhhhhggg...

 This one is for Iris
 Love the colors
 It seems people like to put animals in suits.

 I think this is beautiful.

All of these photos come from Pinterest.  
The lion came from Karin Tancel.
The Bug had no name of artist or publisher.
The Frog came from Velvet.
and Shaman from Yannick Ibanes Juniot.
Have a weird and wonderful day.

T Stands for 1 Month

 Hi Everyone!

I'm joining the T-Party over at
T for me stands for 1 month since I had my foot surgery and I am no where near able to walk. The wound is healing but taking it's time. The pain is still OMG pain but it has shifted or is different. Can hardly wait for this to be over with. I have a healing candle burning for any of you going through medical issues.  May we all feel better soon.
Mr. M. has been busy making me dinners and this luscious cup of cocoa with marshmallows. It was so darn good.
He has also made some great meals for us. 
The first was a spaghetti dinner. Now I did have the sauce already made an in the freezer. The he did the rest.
That is some avocado on the side.
Then tonight he made meat filled breads.
I told him what to put in the ground beef. Now, normally I would never buy Pillsbury biscuits in a can. But, making the homemade dough would be too much.
I have to say these are more than delicious.  
Seriously, look how well filled these are.

The filling has some home canned potatoes, pinto beans, onions, ground beef, and ground chorizo. Seasoning, salt, pepper and garlic.
Well that is it for now. Nothing exciting here. I miss being outside.
Have a great Tuesday everyone!

FFO Graphite Drawing and TG

  Welcome To Friday Face OFF (FFO)

This is the place to show off your faces or your face. Post any type of face from any medium. You can create it, or find it in nature, or even that face in the design of woodwork in your house. Human, animal, alien, or monster. Any kind of face.

I'll start with my foot and end with art. How's that I was corresponding this my doc via email and sending photos of the wound and told him how tight my ankle is and that I still can't flex it. He had me come in the very next morning. He checked everything out and really didn't like the wound at all. Even though I got the size of it down by 3/4. He thought he would have to aspirate but, NO. He put a Silver patch over the wound and told me to leave it there for 3 days. Gave me some sponge bandages and some other medication for after the 3 days. Put me in a boot and told me to be off my foot for 3 weeks. No PT, no walking on it without the boot. Even though the wound is not infected he doesn't want to take any chances and put me on another heavy antibiotic. I'm still on low dose Prednisone, got some pain meds that work and a muscle relaxant to help me with sleep, however I won't take the MR.  Another 3 weeks. Uhhhggg..

I hope all who celebrate had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. Mr. M. made the entire dinner. A small turkey breast, sweet potatoes, Brussel sprouts, gravy, cranberry jelly for me and biscuits. I swear as much as he hates cooking he is really good at it. LOL
We didn't think we would have turkey this year. They are so expensive here and with my foot can't get into Eugene to shop. But Mr. M. found a very small breast for $15.00. Our dinner may not be fancy but I am so proud of Mr. M.

Now for my face art this week. I tried to forget the pain and drawn again. (Before pain meds) I started off with the wrong pencils. I like to start with hard and work my way to soft leads. 
Again there is no light in my house because it is so dark, cloudy and icky outside.

This week the featured artist is....
