Journal page

For SOC 3rd week, I have this journal page lady.
Somehow my lavender looks pinkish, but in person is lavender, purple and yellow, plus my charcoal pencil. She is one I started in 29 faces and I know for sure it will keep evolving. ;o)
I have been welted in this heat, today we will reach 107F / 42C. All this week we have been hot... I think I want to visit the Southern Hemisphere at the moment :o)


Update: turned out we reached 109 :>O
But I made an awesome banana shake :oD

  6. Lovely. We're still cold here in Norway, this seems to be the summer that never showed up.

  7. She's lovely and on my screen it does look lavender! Funny I just came from Gloria's blog where she was also saying it was around 105 degrees - I can't imagine that temperature. Here we're still struggling to get into double figures (in centrigrade) it's wet and cold and like summer forgot all about Scotland. I guess that's climate change for you.

  18. Lovely sketch. She looks so sad which makes purple (a sad color to me) so appropriate.

  22. Ooooh Wee Martha!!! That is hot. Our temps reached 102 and right now it's 99. I want to move away from here. Unfortunately that's not going to happen, so I stay inside with my air conditioner and wear nothing, well almost nothing.:) Great face. I'll take that cooling rain that Maarit is sending you.:)

  25. oops - don't know what I did here but my comment disappeared. So - beautiful lady and you are hotter than we are on the South Carolina coast - we have reached 100F but not every day. It's been over 90F for the past 2 weeks though.

  26. My goodness! I cannot stand 100 . I cannot imagine 107 or 109. Love your faces as always.

  27. How very beautiful and pensive she looks. Lovely, lovely.

    It's been hot and dry in the midwest of the US this week, too. If you head to the southern hemisphere, I'll join you!

  28. A lovely page. It is sometimes difficult to pick two shades that show up different when photographed. You can just about see the difference in my two choice of purples.

  29. I love the colors and she looks very pensive, as if she is sorting out a problem. Good portrait.

  32. I wanted to thank you for stopping by to see my airport photos. There is a Google glitch in the comments the way I have them set up, which is using a pop-up box. However, you don't have to do anything except leave a comment, then hit "publish." Google is trying to play tricks on us, is all.
