I learned something new today...the hard way. lol.
I wrote a blog a while bakk about this girl who had to do some kind of artwork involving apples every day for the entire school year. I can't find it. I suppose that's why you're supposed to label these things. That always seemed like an additionally tedious event. Not so much anymore.
Well, I was going to link you to that particular post to tell you that I've found something to do EVERY day! Along with the rest of the world, it seems, I will be doing a 365 project! Yay me! I won't be drawing apples though. I'd be bored. I'm going to give myself LOTS of freedom. I, SYM1, will be painting a 5x7 EVERY SINGLE DAY for an entire year starting SYM1.1.11. Even better, no matter what it is, I'm going to sell it for $5. That's almost cheaper than a gallon of gas, so no excuses about why you can't purchase anything.
This doesn't seem like much, but I don't paint everyday. Some days I may paint 5 pieces, then not paint anything else the next day. Tragic, right? I think so. However, next year will be different. I am FORCING myself to do what I want to do. I'm seeking my artistic voice. I think I found it already, but since most of my work is based on what ya'll would prefer and not what I might intend for it to be, I could be wrong. Just to be sure, the plan is to paint until I'm sure I saw what I think I already see. If I paint 365 things and put them together and still don't see it...we'll have a problem. I'm also trying to create a habit or two. One being to post more. The other being painting everyday.
I'm telling you about it, so I can't bakk out of it. Snazzy lil trikk I taught myself. I may often be delayed, but I'm not a liar! This blog is my promise to us.
