Little Miss Sunshine

AEDM Day 13

Little Miss Sunshine

This autumn, I joined Katie Kendrick’s Layered Impressions online class. The whole experience was one of play and experimentation. Very enjoyable. One of the first exercises was to quickly draw faces on phone book pages, then later paint them with water-soluble crayons and gesso. This warm-up exercise engages such playfulness. Rather than concerning myself with the outcome of the face, I enjoy exploring intuitive choices on eye shape, color, expression. Mine have all turned out quite silly. Today seemed like a day for relaxing and silly, so I had fun painting Little Miss Sunshine.

Katie has a book coming out with the same name, Layered Impressions. Yes, I’m looking forward to that!

In other news, my house is a bit more clean than the day before. Feels a bit more loved, less cluttered, and quite cozy.
