It’s that time of year again. The time of making (and breaking?) resolutions for the new years. I usually don’t do this traditional past time but I decided to break from my own ways. I decided to resolve. To resolution? To resolute?
So here it is. My ponderances lead me to thinking about my art. As most of you know, I work a lot on it, but can get bogged down in the serious side of things. So I am going on a bit of a lark this year. I am going to do a painting a day. Not a masterpiece a day, just a nice lighthearted painting to keep my creative juices flowing. By the time all is said and done I will have a years worth of daily doodles to look upon. So far this has been going pretty well and I’m hoping it will unblock some of my blocks.
Qui sait?! 🙂
Messy drafting table!!
I did something similar to this in concept, but on a smaller scale, with one of the Digital Photo classes I taught. I found a tumblr blog that does photo a day challenges for various months (seen HERE!) (There are other ones out there, fyi, this is just one of the many). Everyone had a lot of fun with it (unless they lied to me!) (I had fun!) and this was the foundation for the 365 painting challenge.
So. Here’s to a new year and a new you and a new me. Well, hopefully not NEW new us, but the us with a bit of newness!
Happy fresh year,
