Volunteer Opportunity at Feed My Starving Children

Feed My Starving Children - Today's Breakdown

Feed My Starving Children - Today's Breakdown

Today my coworkers and I enjoyed an afternoon outing to Feed My Starving Children.  Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s starving children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals formulated specially for starving children, and they ship the meals to more than 60 countries around the world.

In an hour and a half, we packed 57 boxes of food.  Those boxes will provide 12,312 meals, enough to feed 34 children for a year.  It was a humbling experience that really put life in perspective.  And we had a lot of fun too.  I hope to do it again soon.  It’s a great place for your family, team, employees to enjoy some teamwork and fun while helping out those who really need it.  If you are interested in volunteering or donating, go to Feed My Starving Children to learn more.

self-portrait 2010

I had a prof who told us you should do a self-portrait once a year. quick one. don’t spend a lot of time on it. this took about an hour. getting better at skin tones and highlights, need to work on hair techniques. (ugh, both painting AND my real hair. i’m so clueless about some girl things)

Sketched in Painter X, checked proportions against photo reference in Photoshop, returned to Painter X for painting. Was pleasantly surprised that my proportions were almost right on the first time.
