29 Faces Day 25,- 29

Good bye February but when can we say good bye to snow?  Anyways I'm now tired off whining about the weather so Ms. Winter you just stay as long as you wish, I have other better things to think about!

I have completed the 29 Faces Challenge! (I guess only 28 for this month but I created one more)So happy that I was able to finish it.This year I have enjoyed the process so much as I remembered not to stress about completing the challenge.

Here are my last five days faces. I did tomorrow's too as weekend is going to be a busy time for us.
Day: 25, 26
Two different faces: Loved the sweet faces of these camels which I saw in my son's story book. I gave them a try with watercolors.
A face using acrylic paints and gesso.
It is amazing to see what white can do to a painting. I was not happy with her but once I added white around her, the feel of the painting itself changed.
  She is my last girl. The background is heavy with lots of texture. Can you see the little white flowers at the bottom.They are real ones-:) And Yes, of course I finished my faces with the desire to see Spring soon.

I also made a collage of all my 29 faces. Here it is:
Thank you Ayala Art for hosting this wonderful challenge. I not only had the pleasure to create these many faces but also loved seeing so many different  faces created by other lovely artists.

Thank you everyone for your lovely words of encouragement. See you in March with a new challenge named,
