It's all about him...

our new theme over  at TRY IT ON TUESDAY is:


I came up with a masculine portrait

It's FACE No. 102

I will also link to Moo Mania & More - MASCULINE

And I share my "masculine" lunch with my friends over at
T - Stands -  For - Tuesday.
It's Chilli Con Carne with boiled caraway-potatoes and a strong festival beer-
I don't eat and drink this often - but from time to time it makes me happy.
It's really something I like.

For AJJ where our current well received theme "MAPS"  booms,
I have made a bumblebee drawing and added mini scraps of a hiking map on it's body.

Aerodynamically, the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, 
but the bumblebee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway.
 ~Mary Kay Ash

It's an 8 x 8 inch Junk Journal Page in Mixed Media.

Thank you so much for visiting me - I don't  blog very much right now - the
nice  weather inspires me to be more outside ....
Wish you a wonderful rest of the week!


  1. Great portrait, really well made, and love your mapped out bumble bee for AJJ. The food looks good, too, yummy. Have a nice day, hugs, Valerie

  2. Das Portrait sieht super aus!

  3. Your masculine face is incredible. As always, I'm super impressed. And that bumblebee is simply adorable. I truly wish I could draw like that. Using a map to illustrate the bee was clever, too.

    Of course, the chili con carne and potatoes look good, but that beer looks even better. Thanks for sharing your incredible face (102), your bumblebee and your food and beer with us for T this Tuesday. Enjoy your time outdoors. It's more enjoyable, I know!

  4. Awesome portrait Susi!! Love the meal and the bee spread too! :)

  5. Wonderful pieces today Susi. I lover how your writing adds so much texture to the man's face, and its true about bumblebees but they just keep on flying. Which is good for all our flowers. And yummy meal. It looks delicious. I've been eating light lately and something hearty like that looks soooo good right now. Hope your T day is going great. Hugs-Erika

  6. Wonderful portrait and fabulous journal page, I love the super bee. A fantastic post today, Susi!
    Hugs, Mar

  7. What fabulous face Susi! I love your journal page too, the bee is rather splendid isn't he?
    Your meal looks great but I will pass on the beer thank you! Hugs, Chrisx

  8. I have always loved that quote about the bumblebee! What an inspiring art journal page with just the bits of maps! Lovely!!

  9. super portrait Susi! Now a meal like yours is one we actually enjoy in the winter months:) LOVE your bee and how you cleverly used the map pieces. I must get going on something for that challenge. Enjoy your nice weather and happy T day!

  10. Its a real handsome painting, he has a super expression on his face. The bee looks wonderful on the journal page. I'd pass on the beer, but the meal you shared with us looks delicious.

  13. Lots of things to look at and enjoy today Susi. Great male face with a lovely male lunch as well.

    The map page is beautiful.

    Love Chrissie xx

  14. What a lovely bee and how perfect with the map body.
    Your MAN is super.
    Funny we both had beer in our T posts today ;-)
    Enjoy ♥ Enjoy this lovely weather.

  15. Hi Susi! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a nice comment. Your art always fascinated me! I love your faces. I love your bumblebee page as well! What a lesson we can all learn from the sentiment. ❤️

  16. nachdem ich für heute genug sonne getankt habe, schaue ich mal bei dir vorbei. beide werke perfekt Susi-style. den spruch von der hummel finde ich auch immer wieder genial.
    hab eine schöne Woche!

  17. A fabulous masculine face Susi, and your lunch looks delicious and not just for men! Loved the bee page too. We have to make the most of nice weather - there are too many days when the sun doesn't shine.

  18. Lovely pieces today and a wonderful meal!

  19. Delicious looking food, and gorgeous art! love the 'scribbly' texture in the portrait, and your bumblebee makes me smile. Enjoy the sunshine! ♥

  20. I love your cheery chap full of character, and the scribbly text gives the portrait so much energy. And the bumblebee is marvellous as are the words. Hope you enjoyed your hearty meal - it looks delicious. And enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!

  21. Your manly face is impressive. As is your bumble bee. Very good. I also like the quote. I don't know where you find them...
    Chilli con carne and beer. Yum. I like my chilli with rice, and recently I have taken a liking for cloudy beer with lemon. Very refreshing in the hot weather we are having.
    Thanks for visiting,
    Happy T-Day,

  22. Der Typ ist ja lustig, richtig ansteckend!Wer ist denn dieser nette Mann?
    Na, dann prost! LG Ulrike

  23. Wow lots to see, your drawing is amazing, well done! The page with the bee is beautiful, love the texture and the food sounds tasty. Cheers xx

  24. Fantastic masculine face Susi, love his happy expression. Love the bee page too and your lunch looks yummy!

  25. Great portrait and the bee page is magical, I think the map pieces for the body work wonderfully and the background texture is fab! Chilli and beer is one of my favourites too … yum :-)

  26. Susi i'm in love with the Bee page and the quote! i don't blame you... if i could handle the heat i'd be outside too. :) Happy Tday! Hugs! deb

  27. Beautiful work Susi. Your gentleman is very handsome and your bee project is so amazing!! Love them both! hugs :)

  28. A wonderful portrait Susi. Love your yummy meal, its for a lady like me too lol.

  29. I cannot draw well at all, love your lifelike features and shading- so great! Also, really like your bee- that is able to fly : ) Great composition and colors. Your beer looks delicious, and so does the chili. I have never had chili with potatoes though......

  30. A great face Susi, and I do like the look of your meal :-). Your bumble bee is fabulous!

  31. What a pretty bee, they do look lovely whirring about with their tiny translucent wings.
    Have a great time outside, Susi.

  32. Das Männer-Portrait ist toll! Gutes Essen und ein Bier (für den Genuß = nicht zuviel) dazu, was will man mehr?! Deine Hummel ist super geworden, und den Spruch kannte ich in Deutsch - ist ja wirklich eigenartig, dass die Hummel fliegen kann, entgegen aller aerodynamischen Gesetze!
    Liebe Grüße

  33. I'm in love with that wee little bumble bee :-)
    Schöne trockene Grüße ♥
    Michelle ♥

  34. That's a fabulously masculine face - love all the embellishments on him as well. Beautifully done, Susi!

  35. Uriges Männergesicht,klasse gemacht, genau wie das Bienenbild. Männergesichter sind richtig schwer zu machen, ohne Vorlage krieg ich noch kein Vernünftiges zustande,habs versucht.
    Schönes Wochenende.
