29 Faces Day 24

“Cash”

Here’s the thing. I rarely paint real people, especially the celebrity type.  The main reason being, they have to actually resemble the well known individual you are painting. Of course, that is SO much easier said than done, but don’t get me wrong. I do like a good challenge, and so today in the spirit of 29faces, I offer my attempt at Johnny Cash…

“Fine Tuned”

Tada! This is the painting that had me out of the loop for a couple of days. I am always happy when an idea comes to life. I love the process. First the spark. Mapping it out in my head. Perhaps a quick sketch on paper to set the dimensions of the main elements. Finally to paint, layer after layer, until it starts coming to life. Adding, editing, frustration, aha moments, knowing when to say when. The process is my joy. The finished painting is a bonus…

 

 

29 Faces Day 20

Pomodori

Italian for tomatoes, “Pomodori” is not only my 20th face, but also my entry in this month’s Nibblefest Art Contest on eBay. The theme for February is ‘Black and White’. This Acrylic Painting was done with just three colors, Titanium White, Mars Black, and for the tomatoes, Permanent Red. It is the ACEO (Art Card Editions and Originals) standard size of 2.5″x3.5″!

FYI, search NFAC on eBay to see all the Nibblefest Art and Auctions starting at just $0.99!

“Me Lucky Leprechaun”

And today… we have teeth! Not exactly my favorite thing to do, but hey, it is 29faces. Combine teeth with my annual Leprechaun painting and dang, he’s actually kinda cute… 🙂

 

29 Faces Day 18

“The Guy with the Doll gets the Hook”

Wow, that tuxedo, and if you closed your eyes, you couldn’t see his lips moving. The only one surprised by the Hook was the Dummy! Wah wah…

I think this is my last one of these ‘Hook’ paintings, though I can’t be 100% positive. They have been way too much fun to paint! Tonight I am listing ALL three ACEO Original Acrylic ‘Hook’ Paintings on eBay. That is “The Tapper gets the Hook“, “The Guy with the Dog gets the Hook“, and “The Guy with the Doll gets the Hook“. The Three Day Auctions for these paintings begin at 5pm PST. I’m not going to link them to this post, but if you are interested, search Gulat on eBay…

On second thought, I’m 100% positive I WILL paint more of them! 🙂

 

29 Faces Day 16

“The Guy with the Dog gets the Hook”

Another night on our little Vaudeville stage and another act that didn’t quite pan out. I know, it’s hard to believe these two aren’t Superstar material, but alas, they got the Hook…

 

29 Faces Day 15

“Barking Up the Wrong Tree”

Day 15 and still hanging in there. I’ve gotten myself on a kick of painting some cute little girls for the last couple of days. This one happens to be a country gal, perhaps a young Dolly Parton (the HAIR people LOL), barefoot in the holler. Marge, her faithful coonhound and companion, sitting beside her and barking up the wrong tree!

 

29 Faces Day 12.13.14

 

Wow! Playing a little catch up today. I spent a few days this week helping a florist friend of mine prep for Valentine’s Day. ❤ ❤ With orders filled and everything ready to go at her shop, today was my day to paint. I am glad to say, I got all three done. I am no longer in the weeds. Yay! So, I am going to spend the rest of the evening on my couch, watching TV and enjoying the company of my hubby, who also happens to be my favorite person in the whole world. Forever in love.  ❤ Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
