Hope you can see even a slight resemblance to Sly Stallone.  I am hoping he will win an Oscar tomorrow night for his role in CREED.   Who can ever forget watching the first ROCKY movie?  Obviously I won't win an Oscar for this portrait but it was fun trying.  Getting in a rush as down to two days.

29 FACES CHALLENGE DAY 26

29 faces Day 26 Jerry Orbach as Homicide Detective Lenny Briscoe on LAW AND ORDER. Markers by Eaghl 2016
If you are old as I you have seen Jerry Orbach in multitudes of shows, both television, Broadway and movies since 1955.  He was in Law and Order for 273 episodes and I drew this from one of the reruns which I never tire of watching.  He died in 2004 at age 69.

ELLEN

29 FACES CHALLENGE DAY 25
29 Faces Day 25 Ellen DeGeneres as Ellen drawn from opening scene of  reruns of 90s sitcom. Markers by Eaghl 2016
The Ellen Show ran from 1994 to 1998 and was one of the highest rated comedy shows on television until Ellen disclosed to America that she was gay.  Soon after the show was cancelled. I have been so happy finding the reruns of this hilarious TV show.  I am also happy for Ellen that in this 21st century she has been able to return to television with her own talk show and we can share laughs with her again.

 ABOUT BY EAGHL

Winter was extreme in Kansas.  Ron and I were virtually isolated and loved the warm and cozy life in our little home (a remodeled one room school house.).  This was always thought of by us as our 7 year honeymoon. During that time Ron would work crossword puzzles in the evenings and I would sit with markers and create coloring pages.  I loved to color but at that time there were no Adult Coloring Books like we have now.  Therefore I made my own.  That is how Markerings by EAGHL were created.  I am grateful to Ileana for telling me about this 29 FACES CHALLENGE so I can do some drawing again.  Gradually I am picking up steam and loving it again for the first time since Ron died in  2013.

SELFIE SADIE

29 FACES DAY 13

29 FACES DAY 13 SELFIE SADIE by Eaghl 2016.  Strictly digital for a Saturday.
Digital painting is quick and fun.  I use my Kindle mostly and the Doodle Dawg app. Draw, color, paint and no mess.  Plus you don't have stacks sketch pads filled up everywhere.
Marker art and oil pastels take all of this and more.  All mediums give fun and exciting results.

FLIRT

29 FACES, Day 5

 This is marker art with Prismacolor markers.  It is an ACEO 
regulation 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" on Strathmore Art card. Why does she have a flower in her hair?  It is to cover the fact that I had her shoulder growing out of her ear.  Oops.  But at least the flower does match her eyes.

Here is my first contribution to the 29 Faces art challenge.  (See the link on my sidebar).  I was honored to be accepted for this challenge but am not sure if I can last for 29 days. This one is a  digital drawing which gives me much lots of vibrant colors.  My primary medium is permanent markers.  I call  my work Markerings by EAGHL.   I love color!
