Where do I fit in?

I have been trying to understand where I fit in in the art world.  What type of artist I am.   I admire greatly those of you who can paint a face so that it looks like some great master painted it.  To me, you are great masters in your own right.  But do I want to do that?  No  At least not right now.  Than what is it that I want.  Why am I trying to draw faces at all?  I realize I just want the ability to draw faces well enough to put them on my collaged backgrounds.  LOL  I want to have something to put on the backgrounds some of the time, but want it to be something I made.  Clipping faces from magazines and putting them on the background (not that there is anything wrong with that)  just doesn’t make me happy.  I am searching for what makes me happy in my art.  Otherwise, why am I doing it?  I have no intention of selling my art, so I think I am only doing it to make myself happy.  🙂

I have decided that I am a Collage Artist, a Multi Media Artist and that the faces or other sketches, animals, houses, trees, flowers, etc., are incidental to the collage and background fun.

I have found the 29 Faces to be quite a challenge keeping up with.  And I think when this challenge is complete I will step back a bit from the face making and concentrate more on the mixed media thing for a while.  Give myself a rest.  Not to say that I won’t be making faces.  We do a lot of faces in Effy Wild’s Book of Days class and I will do them in my own journals, but I won’t have to create them daily.

Before I go I would like to share my angle.  I used her as face 19/29.  But she is really just something my muse wanted to do and I let her.  She and I enjoyed this and I will be working on doing some more angles in the future.

Namaste.
