365 Somethings in 2018

I read about this project on Hanna Andersson's Blog & started thinking about it. The idea of a 365 art project intrigued me. A few days later, I read about it again on Tammy Garcia's Daisy Yellow Blog and really started thinking about doing this project. Ta-da! I decided to do it. :o) 

I am committing to making 365 "somethings" in 2018. Why? because I like personal challenges. They inspire me to get busy and actually do some work/play on something I want to practice. It helps me if have a goal, a flexible goal designed so I don't beat myself up if I miss a day or two . . . this 365 challenge provides me with just that. It won't be hard to make a few small canvases at the same time if I need to catch up or just feel like it, because this is a flexible project. One "rule" is just to finish your 365 goal by 12/31/2018. I cannot wait to see *365* 4x4 pieces created by me at the end of the year, whoo-hoo! 

I thought a lot about it and finally decided to do 4 x 4 canvases. I may paint, I may spray inks, use pastels, watercolor crayons . . . I might draw, or do collage, or sew a fabric collage & attach it to the canvas! Lots of freedom to go where my muse takes me. I'm already happy with what I did today, which I will share with you here. I am showing you how I treated the base canvas on the left, and what I added to the base on the right. 

Being part of this project and posting what I make to social media like Instagram using the hashtag  #365somethings2018 - I'll be able to see what other artists are doing and receive much inspiration and creative JOY!
