Sinead O'Connor and Yule lineart (the final faces of 29 Faces!)

30 September 2013

* I have finished 29 Faces in 30 days! *

Sinéad O'Connor (graphite)
Her album "I do not want what I haven't got" is one of my all-time favourites. So many of her songs have touched my life so deeply, and have been rocks for me through many storms, torches for me in times of great darkness, and wings that have helped me learn to fly for myself. 

 I will love her forever for her bravery and her convictions in standing up for the victims of child abuse.

 

"I feel so different"



And the 29th face ...

Wow, it's finished, the challenge is finished... 29 Faces in September. I'm shocked that I made it, just in time, too. This challenge has helped me grow as a portrait artist, helping me develop some techniques, helping me progress in my craft, moreso than I had ever expected. Now that it's over, I'll continue to work on illustrations for my mom's book, Even Odd, and get crackin' on some Christmas gifts. I'd like to challenge myself again, maybe in November, to do another series of 29 or 30.

One journey ends, another begins.

This is lovely!

I really like these challenges. It really gives you a chance to delve deeply into something. I learned a ton too!
