I have completed 51 mini 3x3 canvas paintings and sister pages. Imagine my eyes getting really big like a cartoon character.
Friends, I am so happy with this project. SO very happy so I thought I'd pop over into blog land and leave a little love note of sorts to my first 50 +1 mini's
((ps. sister pages live in an art journal that I get to keep forever and ever! yay))
I am not really sure how long this little project is going to go. But here is what I do know...
I want to make it to 100 days. At least.
After the project is complete I will sell the mini's. They will be available to purchase in groups or individually.
I'm still working on the fine details.
Are you following along???
hello. It's 2018 and though I have been on a youtube binge, a netflix bender, and reading a hefty book... I've also been working on my art like a boss.
that's right. I've been busy.
and for me being busy is all about balance, because if I don't balance out then I could bottom out. Emotionally and physically. And sometimes that happens. (I am human, which means I am an excellent mistake maker).
(Just look at all those grammar errors)
I just wanted to pop in to this blog space... clear the cobwebs and fill you in on some of my projects in the works.
Daily Mini's- I started a daily painting project. I paint a little 3x3 canvas (palm size) every day. DAILY painting is a huge goal of mine so I thought to create a project that is both small and huge. Something I can easily do in a short amount of time each day that will add up to something significant. And bonus, because I am such a generous paint squeezer-out-er I have also been painting a "sister page". The sister page is just for me, to keep a tangible document of this project for the days when all the mini's find new homes.
What I love about the mini project-
the daily practice it promotes, the joy and playfulness of exploring new ideas, having something to post on my Instagram everyday that is brand new, how stinking cute they are, the feeling I get when I display all the mini's together, now I am keeping pretty good track of what day it is.
What I don't so much love-
cleaning my brushes or lack there of said clean brushes, bad lighting.... if I have to paint late in the day it means my photo is late in the day which means less than stellar lighting.
