Faces #2 and #3 of the '29 Faces' February Art Challenge




A guest art journal entry I painted in the 9 x 13 art journal of one of my students,
featuring Faces #2 and #3 of the Challenge

Celestial Art in general, and anthropomorphic celestial bodies in particular, has long been among my favorite subject matter.   In winter time especially, when we here in the Midwest are subjected to endless days of cold and gray, there is little I find more stimulating and optimistic than painting a cheerful and bright Sunny face.  And so when I sat down last night to create a one-page guest entry in the personal art journal of one of my art students (a project I've blogged about before), while hearing the icy wind whipping around the corners of the house and blowing the powdery snow around, I couldn't resist 'whipping' up a warm and happy sun of my own.  Plus it appears a Moon sneaked in there as well (being as that it was night time I couldn't very well leave him out) -- fun times!  Such a hoot in fact that you will likely be seeing more Celestial faces from me before this month-long Challenge is through.  In any event, in addition to catching myself up with Faces, here's hoping I managed to create a memorable piece of art as a keepsake for my young student to always remember me by....
