Art Challenge

Last winter I completed a 100 day art challenge. The object was to complete one art piece a day for 100 days. I did it, and I very happy to have completed it! I can't say it wasn't difficult, but once in the groove it became easier. The main thing that made it easy was that it was no theme. To work on art every day is fun, and doing whatever I feel like is fun! It was artist choice, and that is how I work best.

But this next challenge, this 30 day challenge, kicked my butt! You would think 30 days would have been so much easier than 100. No it wasn't! The theme was red. Sounds simple right? The color red, in the winter, what could be better? Well, I don't know, but on day fifteen I was so sick of working with red It felt like I was on day 99! It isn't that I don't love the color red, because I do! It is one of my favorites and is one of my best selling colors, but seeing it and nothing else day after day wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be!

I love color, a lot but not just one! Definately a learning experience for me. I have been talking about color theory for years and how color sets the mood, or makes you feel a certain way, but never have I experienced it so dramatically, first hand, that way.

I did finish the challenge, all 30 days of it, and am more proud of that feet, than I am of finishing the 100 days. That that is why I have posted my certificate. I don't want to forget this one and all that red color!
