It's Art Every Day Month!!

Wednesday, November 2, 2011
Today, I found out that November is "Art Every Day Month". This is a project that Leah Piken Kolidas of the blog "Creative Every Day" began 9 years ago! I tingled at the thought of it.....could I really commit to creating every single day this month? I already have a to do list a mile long!

After reading the details of the challenge, I realized that it could be any creative act - painting, journaling, art journaling, writing, photography - anything artistic at all! Well....I'm up for that!!



*****

I began this challenge on Day 2, but realized I had actually done quite a bit of doodling, sketching and the like when I journaled on what was Day 1. That counts, right? Right!

Here's a snippet....way too shy to show you more of my personal journaling. The line is a sentiment those of us in Pixie Campbell's first "SouLodge" came to understand. BTW - Pixie's got SouLodge 2 currently up and running.



DAY 1: Doodling/sketching/morning pages.

*****

Today, I began work on a new painting. One based on an art journal page I did recently. She's a work in progress and will likely show up in various stages throughout this "Art Every Day Month".



Day 2: Work in progress - acrylic and oil pastel on 30"x48" canvas, heavy texture created with joint compound....

I hope you'll consider joining in the fun of "Art Every Day Month".....go here to find more details.

Hey Tracie, I'm signed up for this challenge too, I'm hoping it'll help me get back on track with a few projects that I haven't been able to finish, and now I'll be motivated to finish them cuz then I can use it for my Art for the Day!
