No Pinterest, when I look up “curly hairstyles” I don’t want to know how to curl my hair. I don’t wanna see pictures of girls with barrel curls let loose. My hair is already naturally curly. I want to see updos and ACTUAL STYLES.
My second crack at the Art Assignment is a piece of crochet for the recent assignment #11: Under the Influence.
I’m not much of a painter so I decided (after finally finding my crochet hooks having moved house earlier this month) to take my inspiration from the colours used as well as the image itself rather than from the materials used.
The painting is San Giorgio Maggiore by Claude Monet, and it’s quite possibly my favorite piece of art at the Welsh National Museum in Cardiff so upon receiving the new assignment I decided to put some odds and ends of yarn I already had (hence the introduction of a bit more green than Monet used) together and made something small that in some small way resembles the original.
It was really nice to just sit and crochet again as I haven’t done so in a while, the addition of chocolate, friends and Buffy the Vampire Slayer to keep me company also made the process that bit more enjoyable too.
Love the translation to a different medium.
“There’s no better feeling than seeing the lightbulb go on. To know that there’s a new idea in a child’s head, and that you’re the one that put it there. But if any teacher is being honest, they will tell you that there is a small percentage of students— that no matter how many times you go over something, they just won’t get it. And it burns you out. If you’re emotionally invested— and if you aren’t emotionally invested, you’re not doing it right— but if you are, it can burn you out.”
