MAKING ART EVERY (SINGLE) DAY
At the start of 2018, I made a commitment to make art every (single) day. My morning routine is to get up at 4:15 am, write three Morning Pages to get me in the right mental space, and then to paint for at least an hour until my family wakes up. Here is a glimpse into my growing portfolio of mini paintings, color & composition studies, and hours of playing with paint (primarily watercolors so far.) The numbers after each piece represent the days since I began this exciting adventure – some days I managed more than one “successful” painting.
These are 30 of my favorite small watercolors from a 2 day project where I created 101 small watercolor paintings to serve as compassion cards for the September CreativeMornings/Boston chapter event, for the global theme of Compassion. At the event which took place at the MFA, Event attendees wrote kind, compassionate, and anonymous notes to each other, which were later randomly passed out to everyone add a warm experiential touch to the event.
