A face in the window

Hi Everybody!

Hope your day is going well.
I spent  quite some time today at the dentist's, I needed a root-canal treatment. He is really good, but even so it was rather arduous and I am happy to be back home.

For  Art Journal Journey, through my window, and for our 49 Faces challenge, I have another journal page. This was a quick and rather minimalist face drawing, set in a window, and with a verse I wrote for it. I am also linking to Kim Dellow's Friday Face





Who do you see in your window?




The sunrise was wonderful again




And I visited the flower farm again, and although a lot did look rather beaten down by the rain, some are still going strong:





And some more windows from my little town:




Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  4. Terrific verse Valerie with a great face to go with it--which came first I wonder?

    Love the photographs and especially the gladdies :)

    Have a great day

    1. The face came first and the verse sort of developed out of it!

  6. Wow Valerie, that face is fabulous. You should try to have it made into a stencil, it'd would fly out of the shops.
    I hope your mouth isn't too uncomfortable today after the root canal treatment. Ugh!
    The window pics are great. I think the last one looks like they are either painted white onto the bricks or they are reflected thre from across the way. Cool!
    Enjoy your day, {{Hugs}}

  14. Lovely verse today, Valerie. Hope you are feeling a lot better this morning. Dentist visits are not fun and I can relate. The photos of the gladiolas are so vibrant and I enjoy the window photos too.
    an you believe this week is almost over? We celebrate a long Labor Day weekend and hubby has a birthday on Monday. Take care of yourself and enjoy your beautiful surroundings.

    Hugs,

  15. OUCH I bet you're glad to have that dental visit behind you. Glad to read above that things are returning to normal for you.
    Your beautiful green eyed girl is wonderful and the verse is so very special too liebe Valerie!

  20. Your face is very cool. I can imagine it on four big canvases in a uptown New York apartment. Your verse is sweet too.

  21. You might call this minimalistic, but I call it expressive. The eyes take on a soulful look that fits your poem.

    I'm late visiting, so it's good to read your root canal is over and you are feeling better. That sounds very tedious, but it's always good to save a tooth.

    Your flowers today are gorgeous. So glad you had a chance to take some shots at the flower farm and of windows, or it wouldn't have been a Valerie post!!

  22. Beautiful photos! I will miss summer when fall comes

  23. She is lovely for sure but she has a different look... and after hearing about your dental visit I decided that her look is saying.... "please don't touch"!!!! Glad you are better Valerie. j.

  24. She is gorgeous - and I love your text and that little reflection in her eyes. Brilliant work.

  25. Loving your minimalist face, Valerie - so crisp and clear. The poem is lovely too. I've often caught sight of myself in a reflection and I always think 'Oh no! Can that really be me!?' Great photos too - wonderful skies. xx

  26. Love your pink and green face!
    And those glads?!!! OMG! So beautiful! xo

  27. Your face is gorgeous, Valerie. The beautiful green eyes just grab my attention and I wonder what she is thinking as she gazes out the window. And your sunrise photos are awesome. Your architectural photos make me wish I could visit Germany again.

  28. The face is you and it is beautiful along with the poem.

    Your photos are so lovely.

  29. Love! You know putting the lines on for the window changes how I see her, she is definitely watching and waiting :) Thanks for linking up to Show Your Face and sorry I'm late coming around to comment! Thanks for the shout out too. Off to see your other links from last week :) :) Kx
