I am taking Mindy Lacefield's yearlong online class and I had some time last night to work on one of the paintings.
I am having a lot of fun and enjoy learning how Mindy approaches the painting process and I think I am learning some things that I could translate into my own painting styles and subject matter. The only thing that bothers me is that clearly this picture looks like Mindy's style. I like how it turned out, but it definitely feels like an imitation. I just need to figure out how to incorporate these techniques into my own unique style.
My long time friend Jen recently had a new baby who she named Grace. I was looking for a gift for her and found the perfect one! She has 3 other children, named Faith, Hope and William. There are lots of home decorations with Faith and Hope on them. This one was perfect because it had 3 of her kids names, plus Love. Isn't it great? She did love it when she received it in the mail.
