What was I thinkin’?!

What was I thinkin’?!

Yup, I’ve said it before, but now, with one day before lift-off, the nerves are really trying to get the better of me. Who am I kidding? They’ve been working a number on me all week. So here, in an attempt to remind myself WHY I’m taking on 125 paintings in 25 days, I present the reasons I’m going to fling myself out of the nest of safety, comfort, and familiarity and into the abyss of painting madness: For starters, I want to build a better habit of creating my art more consistently.  Fact is, each day I paint consecutively builds on the last painting experience and this can only lead to faster improvement. Faster is better, right? Painting consistently also helps to keep those creative juices flowing, so I want to see how that shows up in my art and how it might impact other areas of my life. Painting five paintings in the same day with the same theme (working in a series) will help further develop my skills as an artist. With that kind of volume, how can it not?! Painting in a series (5 paintings in one theme) provides the collector with a cohesive body of work. At 6″x6″, the paintings are small, but when framed and/or displayed together, they encompass a larger area of wall space and look fantastic over a couch (above image), over a bed, in a wet bar, hung vertically, horizontally, or even in a square on any wall (in which case you’ll have an extra one to hang somewhere else or give as a gift = BONUS!)

Week 1… Primed, toned, and ready to go!

Week 1… Primed, toned, and ready to go!

My challenge is just a week away, so I’ve been doing some prep work to get ready. The canvases come primed, but I like to add another layer of primer in order to create more layers of paint and reduce the canvas texture showing up in my paintings. Then I tone each canvas orange because if I miss a spot while painting a piece, that spot won’t be white. 😉 So there you have it, step 1, and another day closer.
