Following my "True Free Spirit"

One of my favorite artists, Mindy Lacefield, has a brand new e-course for 2013, True Free Spirit. I'm reducing the number of classes I'm signing up for, but I had to do this one. It's a year long course with a different project each month. Mindy is trying not to plan too far in advance so each project is a surprise. Our first project is based on Mindy's new series of True Free Spirit Girls. You can see examples of them in her Etsy shop.


I started with sketching faces. So much fun!



Then I felt ready to move to canvas.




I love the look of these girls. Mine look so serene and peaceful.

I am finding creating these girls quite exciting.

Here is a sneak peek at my next painting.


I can't wait to see what Mindy has in store for next month either!



  1. so in love with these new paintings :)

    1. Thanks, Juliette! Your paintings for this class are amazing too!

  2. Love these Lynda, especially the second one! I love Mindy's classes! I was trying to cut down on classes too but I might just have to sign up for this one now!

    1. Thanks, Cindy. I'll be doing a blog post about my second painting when it's finished. This is a very fun class. The Facebook group is very active and supportive. I highly recommend this course!
