I have been caught up doing alterations on clothing for people, so have not done any art. I didn't really have anything interesting to write about either, hence, no posts.
I have just visited Rowena at warriorgirl.blogspot.com. She has suggested doing a painting a day for 100 days. I think this is a great idea and am going to commit to doing this beginning tomorrow, June 1st. Last year I committed to making a purse/book a day for a year and did so for six months then got bored with it. I intended switching to something else but didn't find anything that I was inspired to do everyday. Rowena's idea will work for me, I think. I need practice painting and I need to loosen up and be less perfectionistic, so whether I do an art journal painting, a small canvas painting or a mixed media, whatever, it will be something I can do in an hour or two. I am lucking enough to be retired and have lots of time on my hands so that is not an issue. Motivation and inspiration are the issues and I think this challenge will work for me.
