Face in the World update

With so many things going on, I completely forgot to post about the amazing collab we are doing in my team #3 in Face in the World!
This one was started in charcoal by Marji,  her blog is HERE
Then Sandra transformed her with beautiful shades of blue. Visit her blog HERE.
Here is what I received in the mail:

Blank background ready for me to play with! Took me a couple of days to feel the direction to follow, then I just went for it. I really didn't want to cover the face so.... I cloned it! :oD


I collaged another face and layered it with flesh tones, then I used fluid acrylics for the background. Now I just wonder what Manon is going to do next!

Also, here are 3 more hands for my "Hands in April" challenge:
They are "1", "3" and "4". I didn't make "2" because it looks too close to the "peace and love" I made already :oP
 Oh, Oh, OH!! I am so thrilled to hear I was the lucky randomly selected artist to be a PPF Painting Spotlight ♥ HERE

Thanks for visiting! ....Any more input on hands? ;o)

  4. Oh Martha, I LOVE what you did with it! Such a great idea! The whole concept is great, it must be so thrilling to see the piece that you started being transformed by other artists. Can't wait to see all the finished pieces!

    1. It is! So much fun and a pleasure to work a little in another artist's painting ♥ I feel lucky!

  5. I'm still amazed at your creativity for the face painting. Really! Love what you did and honestly - I can't wait to see what Manon does :) Thank you for dreaming up and hosting this fun adventure we all are on with Face in the World.

  7. I love the face with the face! Excellent Martha! And, your hands are terrific! How about a zero? Congrats on the artist spotlight ;o)
