Sing Like Yourself

Sing Like Yourself

One Hundred Faces by Sharon Tomlinson
36" x 12" on wood
 It was very hard to photograph the whole piece.
To get all 100 in one photo (above), I spliced together sections (below).
Don't look too close, the splicing is not so perfect. 





found poem "100"  by Sharon Tomlinson
 100
For a moment she wondered about something to entertain
before blinking she picked faces.

She picked
beautiful dreamy eyes
spicy lips
unruly hair
sweet cheeks
teeth
a
shy and inquiring
smile
and
a hand

The
moment
was
to see
her
voice
echoed
forward
saying
"sing like yourself"

ps: I still have more to say about One Hundred Faces but will leave that for another post. 

Dont' forget, sing like yourself!

  2. I am in awe. This should be in an art gallery or someplace where lots of people can see it. I envision people coming up to it and trying to decide which is their favorite face...I would have a hard time choosing myself. So...you'll have it made in poster form and sell????? It's to die for

  3. Beautiful Sharon. I haven't been keeping up with you lately and am so inspired. I just rediscovered my own love of painting faces and am SO glad your class has been part of my journey. XO

  6. I would never be able to choose a favorite because they are all so unique. Where will you hang the 100 faces?
