English Gent, and Blogs

First off I just want to say that participating in Sketch Crawl was such a wonderful experience and meeting all you other artists and bloggers was incredible.
I'll hate to see this Art-A-Day month end, so much sharing and viewing of beautiful art should continue throughout the year! I would love to follow any of your art blogs, so if you have one please put a link in the comments below :)
I also have a blog that I update everyday, so the sharing can go both ways.
Here's my link,

Anyway, back to art!
On Monday nights I take an art class, and this month we made clay masks that were fired in a kiln. Right now we're at the glazing stage before the final firing.
When asked to make a mask I wanted to do something out of the ordinary, so I made
a proper English gentleman from the 1800's. His back story is that he went on a venture to the
Congo but and went completely native. I enjoyed adding the face paint so much!
I think the rugged native face paint and the proper English expression give my piece an interesting contrast.

By jove!, he's gone native?!
LOVE the back story and his kind eyes.

Lol, at Bobi's "by jove." He is, indeed, a bit of a jungle-gentleman, isn't he.

Here's my blog, Sarah, and I am most pleased to share it with you:

I love your stories Sarah. So much dialog there... a true story-teller you are!

I'd love to keep the blog going too ... or maybe together we can discover other online blogs that challenge creativity on a daily or regular basis.

My blog which you are welcome to peek at and enjoy is: I'll check your's out often too.
