Faulty Facade by Face-Reality Faulty Facade by Face-Reality
Faulty Facade - November 2012 - 19" x 28" - Watercolour

This is another painting of my co-worker Karen... and a challenge for myself. I recently had a friend tell me that there was no way that I could paint this in one week's time, well... of course I had to prove them wrong, right?! It was not only one of the busiest weeks for me, as I was just in a theatrical production that involved three evenings of performances, I have three kids, and not to mention, work full time - but guess what? I pulled it off! AND to top it off - I am REALLY happy with this piece!

Thanks for looking - and I'm sorry I have not been responding on more recent comments - I have had a very hectic past few months, but I sincerely appreciate all of your feedback - thank you sooo sooo much!

Wow, Amazing how you pulled it off!! :) Love Karen's expression and the detail in her clothing, as well as the almost magical look you gave the dilapidated scenery. As somebody who's been overwhelmed with life's demands, I can comprehend the enormity of getting this image done in a week!!! Many congratulations to you!!!! :) :) :)

Thank you! Yes, trying to have fun, and keeping out of trouble at the same time ;) We put on the play called "37 Postcards"... it was a comedy - pretty receptive audiences all three evenings, which always leaves you with a good feeling. Bitter-sweet feelings about it being over though... Whatever will I do with all that free time now?! hahaha :)

Go mad I say! I have a low embarrassment threshold so the whole acting gig is a no no for me, but I'd imagine it'd be hard coming down from the high of a good performance.I love the theater, it's so unreal watching people perform on stage in front of you, yet so incredibly real at the same time.
