    Speed painting Harry Potter and Voldemort!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     DesireG told me that she was inspired by a great desire to become a speed painter. 'Harry Potter and Voldemort are characters we enjoy! At the end of this month we will be giving our first official speed painting demo of both characters to the Marple Public Library's 2nd Annual Harry Potter Birthday Bash so we're excited!'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    I've gone into a rage of creative madness. I'm trying to make every part of my life an excuse to write,draw or paint.

    My creative side kick Angel Pabon (to the left of me) and I are practicing to become live speed painters. Yes that's right.I want to become one of those weird people you see in Time Square dancing and painting at the same time begging for your kind donations. LOL.

    We've been busy practicing speed painting in preparation for some live performance painting that we will be doing starting this month. I've known and mentored Pabon for a while (seven years I think) but he's become his own creative teacher at this point which I am very proud of.

    Overall it took 11 minutes for me to paint Harry Potter but I've got to bring it down to 6 minutes to become an official speed painter! More practice...more practice!

    Angel got Voldemort done in about five minutes. WOW! Go Angel!

    All we need now is some lively choreography to get the crowd involved as we paint which is why I time lapsed it due to the lack excitement LOL.

    Pray for us! We're not dancers :)
