Patterned Four

I have utilized art challenges in the last couple years, as they are a motivator to do something different.  A site called saetastudio.com hosts “30 in 30” twice a year. This is a collection of studies on twelve-inch square paper with patterned collage elements to start me off with the acrylic paint...GO!

100 Day Project - Kusama, Sontag, Salle

I have been noticing the 100dayproject hashtag on Instagram and I have discovered that there is a history to this approach to creativity, but one group effort to rally folks around it recently began last week--so I am not too late. These structured challenges seem to help me move ahead.

While I am working on a series of paintings on the wheel image that has come up for me repeatedly, I will post these paintings on my gallery page when completed. I also have a writing project of short memoir pieces that could use more attention. Still, I want to define this 100 day project as something else, something simple and straightforward--something do-able.

So this is it... 

For several years I kept notebooks with notes and quotes from books I was reading. I am not doing this so much lately, but these notebooks contain a treasure of wonderful quotes to ponder.  I will create small digital collages to feature these words as a way to share some of this material with others.

Here are the first three...

Update on my Painting A Day - "30 in 30" Challenge

I began February with a plan to post a painting a day for a thirty paintings in thirty day challenge that happens each Fall and Winter through some artists on a podcast that I listen to (Artists Helping Artists).

I posted 23 new paintings and the last one was a triptych so I think of my output as 25. Although I have new work in progress, it is the last day of February. The challenge goes a couple more days into March to account for the short month of February. I am pleased with my 25 and I have sort of moved on. 

Found myself side-tracked on posting of few of these new pieces on a site that offers archival prints. Several of my images may now be ordered as prints at Imagekind starting at $26 for a small unframed print. Larger sizes, along with mat and frame options are available. There is also an option for wrapped canvas prints.

Please take a look to get a better idea of what I am talking about...
