Face 17 Donna's sketch

Probably you heard of the passing of Donna Summer. :o(
Who hasn't danced or hummed at one of her songs, even if they were only babies when she was the disco queen?
Well, today I invited anyone from the 29 faces challenge in FB to make an interpretation of her face. I invite everyone that would like to draw or paint her portrait. I am basing my sketch in a couple of photographs found online (couldn't see who is the author).

   *If you are making a Donna Summer portrait let me know! I want to make a slideshow when we are all done

This is a sketch and I will be working on it for a few days, posting the WIPs pictures:



And I will leave you with music to dance:

  9. Love your sketch, Donna Summer will be sadly missed and an art tribute is such a lovely idea. I read this post earlier and was so inspired that I went off and painted my contribution!

  10. R.I.P. Donna! I remember parents being scandalized by her songs and videos back in the day, talking about how she was glorifying prostitution. Now you watch them and she seems like such a lady!

  11. I like your sketch Martha. Nicely done. I have an album by her. The big disco album and haven't played it in a long time. I don't know if my record player has a needle or I'd play it to pay tribute to her. Love your work. Have a wonderful weekend and if it's hot over there, turn your ac on. I know I will. Take care.

  26. Martha, I am way behind on blog posts, so not going to comment on every post, but please know I am reading them all, and enjoying all of your artwork and faces.

    I especially love this one! I know it will be beautiful when all done, it is already. Couldn't believe it when I heard she had passed. I am too young to really know her but had heard a lot of her music from my mom listening to her. One of my favorite songs is No More Tears!
