When I thought up the challenge for the Quilting Arts forum, I could not decide on a theme, but wanted to do something with "face" in it. It could be interpreted many ways, and originally I thought I would do a self-portrait.
Then Life got in the way, exciting opportunities popped up that I could not pass up, and there's my regular 9-5 job in there as well. So I had to reconsider my first idea and come up with a plan B. A fast, executable, but still excellent Plan B.
I used to draw faces all the time as a kid. I'd read comics, and if a panel looked especially pretty, I'd try to blow it up on a regular sheet of typing paper. They never looked like the comics, but this one was close, and it was always "my best face". I saved it in a folder, and it's dated 1991. I was 18. In High School.
So, I give you my best face. Looks a little like Marilyn from a while back, huh?
This is painted on white cotton then quilted.
