  2. love that quote. these are ideas I'm ruminating on these days.

    I think Eleanor is wondering what I am up to in that "you silly cow" kind of way!!

  3. On one hand, she seems keen, on the other she's, whatever! Your faces never cease to delight, and love that quote. I'm gonna have another go at faces, and will try to loosen up somewhat. Everything I've done looks so STIFF. In awe of your work, Marg. ox

  7. eleanor looks like alberta's mom and is concern for her and wants to go with her on her journey. she's wondering what is out there, what dangers lurk on palates that have such strong colors. will they overwhelm her and make up to be just another one of those "painted ladies" of the computer screen! ha. actually from where i sit, that one cheek, viewers' left, looks like a leaf, maybe california oak! don't worry eleanor, alberta will be okay. i think she knows about gravity. you know weston was quite the ladies man for such a little guy. i always liked seeing the photos of him with his view cameras over his shoulder - they looked bigger then himself! cheers xox

  8. Hello Lynn, I've been watching your blog for several months and really enjoy your work and dedication to drawing! I noticed you refered to doing a pogo so I googled it and found the poloroid pogo printer. Is that what you're talking about? And how do you use it? Thanks so much for sharing your art.

  11. Hi Lynne! Another beautiful face you have made. You do the best faces honestly! I can't remember if I thanked you for sharing the card/moo information. So thank you! I have tucked the info away for the near future.

    I have seen you floating around Tumblr...I just joined, but I am so lost there...I can't seem to figure out how to link my blog, twitter and facebook like everyone else seems to have done. I love all the art work on there though.

    Have a great weekend Lynne!
