My goodness, has it really already been a whole week since the beginning of the '29 Faces' challenge....? How quickly it's going....!
I have to admit, when I first heard about this Challenge, I did have a moment's hesitation in regards to taking part. I think it was the thought of the daily blogging that really gave me pause -- it just seemed so...daunting. And yet here with a full week under my belt, I'm pleased with how I've been keeping up so far, plus how there is no question at all about the fun to be had in participating. The interaction with my fellow artists and blog followers has truly been a pleasure and an inspiration, and I'm so appreciative of all the lovely comments I've been lucky to receive. So too with the many nice emails I've gotten since all this began -- it means a lot to me and I thank you all! (Note: to any who haven't heard return word from me yet, please know you will very soon as I catch up on my correspondence :-))....
So here we are -- Day 7 of the Challenge. Tuesdays are always my busiest day, and today was no exception -- nevertheless I still managed a few hours of studio time this evening, which afforded me to finish, for once and for all, another wee rock painting.....
Meet "Bloo Moon":
|"Bloo Moon", a Painted Rock|
Who can resist that face...?
Here we see Mr. 'Bloo Moon' in his classic crescent shape, nestled comfortably in a cushion of clouds (A view of his right side).
(Yes, these photos are rather crappy, sadly, but the best I could do tonight given my light-challenge house (will reshoot in natural light asap)...(
|Lots of Character in his face (painted following the natural shape and contours of the rock)|

I'd begun 'Bloo Moon' many moons ago, even declaring him 'finished' a time or two over the years.....and yet somehow, I was never really satisfied, and as such never uploaded him anywhere online. Tonight while re-examining him (again), I realised that more contrast between him and his 'cloud' would be an improvement, plus more definition in his features, among other details. Correcting these things this evening I am now much happier. Victory! Yet another 'Finis!'....!
