I am pretty bummed about lack of time. It eats at me daily, especially when a young miss loves to scream her head off and bite. She's special I tell you. Honestly, she is the freaking smartest kid I've ever met, also the baby of the household, and really really good at manipulation. This kid can pull at every string imaginable, and in the process, I had to dye my hair pink, in hopes that this kid is not noticeably aging me. I digress, eh? Goodness, sometimes I just have to let that out, you know, to people who want to read.
Back to Mindy. Her class rocks. I wish I could really participate. In the few minutes here and there while cooking or something, I grab this little journal and have randomly done a few of the exercises. I am eager to catch up as the work posted is looking so fab!
Here is a little pieces of that journal.
Words, symbols, paint...
Faces. This I want to spend much more time on, and plan on it. The fun thing about these little faces is they are so quick and I don't think at all... so when that kid is screaming and throwing her fits, I can just stand in the kitchen and ignore the delightful sounds of an almost three-year-old. and make a Mindyish face.
These girls were not part of her class, I just started drawing her loose faces, and went from there. Just for fun really. I think this girl is hilarious. I think she is jealous of that cute girl's bow!
Pics with my phone. Getting lazy huh? well, remember that whole time thing!
This week the class is working on backgrounds. I am excited to play with this, as I love making backgrounds, and what is so fun for me, is how Mindy creates and gives such simple and new ideas. It will be interesting to see where I go from her class back to my own work. As much as I adore Mindy's style, I am never interested in creating like someone else. But what an inspiration she is.
If I survive any more days with my third youngling, I'll be back, hopefully in much better spirits, next week! Woot!
and a little fun for PPF~
