Friday Five: 29 Faces

A small group of EBSQ artists, including myself, are participating in the 29 Faces in February Challenge. We are painting, drawing, and sketching with traditional tools and digital. Join us in the EBSQ forums if you are participating too! I’ll be sharing a selection of faces today and again later in the month.

EBSQ Friday Five

Portrait by Lauren Gray

1. Two New Pieces – The above painting is just one of the portraits recently painted by Lauren Gray. Beautiful!

2. Legendary Texas Jackalope – It’s not surprising Sherry Key’s latest ACEO sold in the blink of an eye. Who wouldn’t want a Jackalope portrait complete with a Jackalope Hunting License?!

3. September 2011: The Path – This month’s free mandala is available from Maureen Frank’s blog, Mandala of the Month.

4. Help me Choose – I have a mini giveaway on right now. To enter all you have to do is share your opinion, good or bad. 😉

5. Gig Harbor Open Studio Tour – If you live in Washington State or will be there the week of Sept 17th don’t miss Kari Tirrell’s open studio.

Have a wonderful weekend!
