Soul Food — hopeful pictures in his mind

Working on my interpretation of the lesson by MitsiB, whose work really resonates for me in it’s rawness and honesty….”hopeful pictures in his mind” found text in a double spread in my art journal.


Here is a slideshow of the process I used in my own voice.

    Wonderful! Love the little flip video that accompanies it and shows your thought process. An excellent exercise!

    We’re headed into a week of predicted sunshine and high 70s – hooray for a dry week! šŸ™‚ Hope your week is wonderful.

    What a strange character….good thing I like strange characters! And I love the bright colors. Your slide show isn’t playing for me right now, I’ll have to try again later.

    Corrine, I love you wonky character! I’m really glad that you show the steps in your process here- great idea! I think I will make a collage of my hopeful pictures- it seems very releasing “) xo

    Well, this dude looks like he has a cat lying on his head, maybe as a hat!
    Wonderful colors!

    Really speaks well, visual expression of: orange sherbet ice-cream filled with childhood dreams. :]

    Fun piece! I love painting in such a way that the image presents itself. It’s such Good Medicine.

    I expect you were surprised to see this character emerging. What a fascinating creature with the teeth and cat hat.

    I continue to admire how your mind works, Corrine, and how you just let the process lead you, rather than the other way around. If I could just learn to do this, my struggle would be less ardent! I love this wonderful being with hopeful pictures in his mind!
