December marks the end of many things for me;
The end of the year, various trials & school.
It also marks the end of a waiting period to see my guy, you bet I'm excited!
It's going to be an intense month, since I'll be traveling the next couple of weeks.
The guy & I are going to Passion 2013! (anyone else going?)
Also—starting this Dec 5th, I will be sharing some happy people & things every Wednesday of this month!
Anyways, here's some things I did recently:
spending time with some good friends after thanksgiving!width="565" />
I also saw Perks of Being a Wallflower—which was great by the way—with this lady:
It's always a real treat when I get to spend time with this chic! She came down for Thanksgiving & I got to see her for three days straight! She shares my love for art, finding cool places in PR and has an eyes for beauty. I've blogged about her before & have photographed her countless times. She's an artist, and an inspiration, from the things she wears to the things she makes. She's graduating next year from FIT & specializing herself in Knitwear. She's also engaged! I'm grateful for your friendship & being a part of your life amidst the distance.
I'm also wrapping up my classes!!
This painting was part of my presentation for one of my Psychology classes.
I had to pick a movie to analyze from a theoretic standpoint.
I did it based on Edward Scissorhands & a Social Psychology theory that explains how this movie is a satire that exposes the suburbs society as uniformed, corrupt & unable to cope with a creative individual who cannot conform to them. I explained how the first scene of the movie is a metaphor of Little Red Riding Hood, emphasizing Tim Burton's main point.
Burton's contrast of a horror story & a fairytale also highlight what Burton shows of our American society.
Anyways, I wanted to add a visual element to the presentation based on the film and I painted this.
The reason why I'm hyping about it so much is because it's my first portrait painting & I did it in two days. TWO DAYS. Have you seen the size of this canvas? Yeah. The professor ended up keeping it and was really humbled about it.
And, I just can't help it! This movie screams Christmas for me, how could I not pick it?
Goodbye summer weather & hello winter,
you're my excuse to cuddle L as we walk...
It's nice to finally blend in when I ask for hot cocoa, it's normal in the cold.
What are you excited about December?
Any special plans or traditions you can't wait to do?
