Faceless and Nameless

I almost forgot Paint Party Friday and Sneak Peek Friday - how could I!!! So I am late today, but better late than never!

This faceless girl in this painting is a result of Christy Tomlinson's "She Art Workshop #3" - I am still not done with the workshop, but have learned so much. Thankfully it is accessible for an entire year, there is no need to rush. Usually I am not a fan of faceless people, but I have learned how much of a face you can actually paint just by shading. I like how she has turned out.


Unfortunately, this painting still has no name. On my Facebook page I have asked my "fans" to come up with a name and post it in the comments. So far I have received quite some beautiful options. If you can think of a good name/title for this painting, I would love it if you popped over to my Facebook page and left it there in the comments. The person who's name/title "wins" will receive an 8x10 print of this painting. In order to be "eligible" it has to be posted on Facebook. Thank you!

Enjoy visiting all these wonderful artists' blogs and have a great weekend!

I am the worst at titles! I usually hit up friends and family for them too... I love the painting, I think faceless paintings have a wonderful mystery to them and yours is no exception...

Taking workshops is such a great thing. i think that it opens up so many creative doors that maybe we didn't even know we had. Self pace is even better. You can savor it more. Lovely work!

I love your color choices for this, Carola! (And I agree, it is amazing how much of a face you can suggest just by shading.)

I'm glad you didn't forget PPF! Hee hee!

I love that painting - you have managed to get expression without distinct features. Don't know that I'll get to FB - but introspection comes to mind when I look at the painting. HPPF

I really like faceless painting. There is a face that everyone sees. I make faceless dolls.

I love your sneak peak ;o) I am sorry, I'm not on facebook. I am still going to share the first name that came to me, which is, "Blossom" ;o) Take Care ;o)

see you there! said...

What a challenge to paint "faceless". You did really well at it - the face is subtle, not there but easy to fill in with some imagination.

Diane said...

this is really spectacular -- I love it.
I also love the pretty redhead on the postcard you shared with me through Liberate Your Art 2013! Yes, I was one of the very lucky recipients to receive your postcard! How cool is that?!

oh and I forgot to tell you ... after I had put the postcard on my desk with the other 3, I realized someone had kissed the redheaded lady and the person obviously had been wearing lipstick! No kidding.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to the blog hop.
