last week i had the privilege of creating some portraits of some of the brilliant people who make lynda.com such an amazing resource (if you haven't heard of it before, click on the link to learn more). i was especially excited to try to create authentic, telling and vibrant portraits of the two co-founders/owners lynda and bruce. (bruce is an unbelievably creative and fascinating person, mentor and friend. i haven't gotten to his portrait yet, so i'll save that for another post! for now, back to lynda....)
lynda is one of the most inspiring and wonderful people i have ever met or known. she has a keen and curious mind, a sharp intellect, a kind and compassionate heart and sparkling eyes. lynda is a leader, teacher and someone who sees the best in those around her. above is an iphone snap of one of my favorite pictures that is hot off the press (or desktop printer in this case).
as i tacked it up on the wall i was struck by that ever-present contagious creative spark that shines so brightly in her countenance, smile and eyes (i think i'm going to leave this one hanging in my office for a while!). and if you have ever met lynda, you know what i mean. if you haven't met her in person, perhaps you've experienced a bit of who she is by way of the benefit of using the amazing educational resource and training site she has created - three cheers for lynda!
and so,whatever your experience, if you have a lynda or a lynda.com story that you would be willing to share, i'd love to hear your thoughts!
