I am going to make this short and sweet today because the Spring allergies have set in and I can barely see the computer screen.
By the time I write my next post next week, I will be on The 100 Day Project. To be honest, it’s a little scary staring at the 100 days ahead. I am not prepared yet. Well, about half prepared. I have 30 canvases and 5 x 7 sheets of paper prepped. I have about that many items on my theme list. Oh, I forgot to mention what I decided on for a theme.
I knew I wanted to work on my drawing and painting skills in the hope of coming closer to my personal voice in my work, but I felt like I needed a theme to have some boundaries and not go off on some crazy tangent as I am likely to do. I wanted the theme to be something positive that I looked forward to as well. Finally, I decided to focus on thankfulness/gratitude. It’s positive and sometimes I get caught up in a life problem and slide into only seeing the problem, not all the good that surrounds me. Hopefully this will sustain me on those days when I just don’t want to touch a paint brush.
I also challenged myself to not do conventional images, but to try and express my gratitude in unique ways. Spending extended time with something I am thankful for should also imbed my appreciation for it more deeply I hope.
So, join me starting on April 4th, through July 12th on either my Bloomtown Studio Facebook page or on my Bloomtown Studio Instagram page to keep up with how I am doing. Links are on this site somewhere. Please feel free to cheer me on. There are going to be days I will very much need it!
Oh, and did you notice I made some changes to my website here? Check out my updated portfolio page. Tiny little steps are better than no steps!
Have an awesome week and take a tiny step toward your goal.
