Do you see it, the face in my bathroom curtain. Like a Day of the Dead face watching me. These are the curtains I made out of my grandmother’s pillow cases. It’s not scary, it has a flower for a nose and a lovely leaf necklace, but it’s demanding. Trying to tell me something or maybe just wants to be known. For a long time I’ve had the urge to draw the faces I see in things, (patterns in carpets, swirls in bathroom tiles, knots and grain in wood) maybe the face in my bathroom curtain will be the first.

Very beautiful, Maria and an inventive way to re-purpose those treasures!
I can identify with your urge to draw faces that you see. I’ve always wanted to draw faces on cacti and give them rolling, googly eyes. I think there was a TV commercial a few years back that played on the theme of faces in inanimate objects – light switches, suitcase locks, and so forth. Always liked that idea…
Once you see it … you can’t un-see it!
I see objects/shapes in tiles often and had no problem seeing your sugar skull. I think it is a right brain function that some creative folk have. I agree with Joan. Once you see it you can’t unsee it.
Yes, day of the dead, indeed! Very nifty shot, too.
Yes and do you see the little elf to the side with the pointed hat?
I didn’t Erika,I’ll check it out.
Thank you, Maria — I do that all the time! Glad I’m not the only face-finder! 😉
