Wrapping Up...

I am starting to wrap this years 100 Day Project.  I planned on being consistent and sticking to a theme or a style that carried through to the end but that was not to be. Today I am working on numbers 84 & 85 and things have veered off considerably. That's not necessarily a bad thing and it's a life lesson. We are told from a young age to plan for the future or to plan for a vacation or for buying a house or having children but no one tells us what to do when the plan changes. Like my art for example - the plan was one thing and it took a turn. Accepting that it's not a bad thing is the healthiest way for me to move forward - and it's a great opportunity to experience the unexpected. For me this means trying styles and subject that I haven't done before.

100 more...

This year I decided to again join the 100 Day Project - which simply means 100 paintings in 100 days. This week I am at 54. Unlike last year I am not trying for 100 days straight - I have too many other distractions right now so my 100 days will stretch out a bit. And this year - unlike last year - I am being consistent in my subject and style with only a few exceptions. All will be abstract landscapes but some will be loose while others will be detailed and some will have lots of white space and others will have the paint filled into to every corner. All will be on 12x9 paper. 

Here are 47, 49, 50 & 51.
