Hi there artists and animal lovers.
I would like to all to meet Archie, the newest member of my family.
He was rescued from a very bad situation almost one week ago. Since then he had his first vet visit , and his first pup-ichino (the steamed milk from my capuchino) from our favorite coffee shop who also love dogs... Libreria Vieira Arte-Ilusiones here in Banos de Agua Santa in Ecuador.
He is doing ok.... his health is good but he has been emotionally broken...
It will take time and lots of love, I think my family can do that, no problem.
He has started to play with our other rescue pup... it is nice to see...
thank you all for your kind words and loving support. I added him into the Happy Infectious Faces project, because his face makes me smile too!
He has inspired me to make some art and try and show you the love and trust he has in his eyes...
Thank you all for the support and love for him... We greatly appreciate it.
I felt that it was time to get the Happy Infectious Faces Project to get its own page on my website.... done and dusted.
Check it out, and let me know what you think?
look what happened,
We got an award for one of the faces in the project!!!!
some more faces.....
and..... I did my own face!!!!
that was weird.... I don't even know what to say about that, painting your own face.... anyway. Here we all are in the Happy Infectious Faces Project.... Hope it makes you smile and laugh and that you share it with your friends who are feeling down today...
thank you to Alianza de Artista for this Award.... it makes me breathless and a little teary eyed.
Strathmore tan toned paper (15cm x 22.5 ish cm), Qor water color, Rotring black drawing ink
yes!!! I am still moving forward with the happy infectious faces project.... I have 6 amazing women who gave me awesome photos to work from... ot make paintings from. I feel that all these participants in my personalized 100 faces challenge are heros. Why you ask? Because they want to help other people to smile during this weird time we living (covid). But did they know they could make so many people smile? Does it matter? If you can help to change one persons state from lower to happier, you did a good job.... so thank you again participants.
I am smiling and laughing.... :)

i took this photo the other day of most of my happy infectious faces project all laid out. (i sent the ones to the people that live in Ecuador....I can't yet send them to other countries, our postal system is a MESS right now and expensive.)
I am just so happy, all these faces make me just breathless and thrilled. Thank you so much to all these participants and those people who have been so kind with their comments.... I am learning so much from this project....
I hope this photo makes you smile like it did for me!!!
I have used Strathmore tan toned paper, watercolors (used second hand store finds and Qor) white markers and white Qor paint, and always rotring black ink....
well now for something a little different and probably refreshing from the 100 faces challenge....
I found 2 unfinished paintings yesterday, and I am not person who has Unfinished projects. I found them in one of my finished art stacks. I hate to share this but I have ADD and OCD and i can't handle a messy studio or equipment, or unfinished projects. I can't deal with the distractions.... it is like a little niggle that just won't go away. who else is like this.... are are you the other kind.... and would you admit to it?????
Collage/mixed media A3: watercolor paper, wrapping papers and international news papers, qor watercolor, posca pens, faber castel polychromos colored pencils, rotring black ink.
well, here we are again, another time to smile. these people contributed and i painted, i think they did a great job, and also challenged me yet again.... you think that it would get easier.... but in honesty i am finding it a little harder, anyone got any ideas why that might be? so strange.
but i have to say that these faces make me smile and giggle, for sure.
Strathmore tan toned paper, 20x15+-cm... Qor watercolor paint, and rotring black drawing ink.
