But one morning I woke up with this curly thing in my mind, and once I was up I grabbed my big sketchbook and began drawing what I saw. I drew many of them...lots and lots of curly things. When I was done, most of the page was full, but the lower right section was open...and so I finished it, with a face:
This sort of broke down the artist's block I was going thru. It gave me inspiration to do it again.

I really like the string of onomato beads, and she has flowers in her hair! the Mi2 in the lower right was odd, but it was the first time I put that tangle in a random shape and it's okay.
Not sure about the roller coaster looking huggins there on the right side of her face. But it's still okay. Again, I wonder how amazing must her thoughts be as she gazes upward.

Looking online, I saw several faces with their hair piled up, and gave that a try. Doesn't Undling (across her hairline in front) look JUST LIKE hair? I also love the paisley and of course Tropicana like a crown is yummy! She also has flowers in her hair.
And notice the horizon of Zenith running behind her.
These were so much fun to do, and I plan on making many more, not just faces, but anything that has layers or piles (e.g., I saw a tangles soft serve ice cream cone)
Thank you for going along on my little tour.
Now for the Diva Challenge This week we are to make a string that is Stripey, so I did. I used a micron burgundy pen in 05 and just created a simple horizontal stripe, with a curve in it.

Keeko, Striping, A-torm, Maizey, MacDee, and fringe. Looks sorta blankety, doesn't it?
It's also been a more active week. I went hiking twice (got pictures of only one hike)
Lake Mary and me!

and took my little cat Becky out for a walk:
|Wait...woah! this isn't the apartment!|
