Faces #897-#900

Let me just start by mentioning how happy I am to be working again, and to have reached the 900 mark of my goal here.
Face #900, below, is a companion piece to a face I have already shown but now completed. The two faces combined make up one piece called "Soulmates". The faces in the piece are at a scale slightly larger than life size.These are both in soft pastel.

 Below: "Soulmates"

Faces #898 and #899, are rendered below in ink...
 And face #897, is also rendered in ink.
I like the best of both worlds, of working in ink for its precision and detail...and working in pastel for the explosive color and more painted quality of the medium.I plan on continuing the remaining 100 faces with a lot rendered in both mediums.

As always, thanks for reading and visiting my blog. Until next time, take care. :)

Faces# 887-#896,

It took almost an hour to upload these from my tablet, so I will be keeping my words to a minimum. Recent work, below. I am determined to finish what I set out and started to do here what now seems a lifetime ago.
In the last year, rheumatoid disease took out my knee and left me in a wheelchair... I have had total knee replacement for that almost two months ago. I am also struggling with problems in my hands. I thought I'd never draw again, and could barely sign my name. But with some persistent efforts, I have found my way back even in spite of pain....

Thanks for visiting, as always.
