One piece a week

A couple of years ago my friend Theresa Bond and I decided we'd try and finish one piece of artwork a week, based on the one painting a day movement. It was super fun and I really made some great work that 1st quarter (because a year is really long and I pooped at in April). I think it was freeing to go in and work and not be afforded much time to over analyze and overwork. I need some spontaneity in my work right now and I'm going to give it another shot. In effort to make it this an easier task and less daunting, I plan on broadening the scope. Sewing projects are included. Projects that I started at one point and never finished are included. Hopefully I'll make it at least until April.

What a great idea. I may have to follow your lead. I can see how freeing this. It's so easy to put off things due to over analyzation.

I know. I tend to overwork, so this'll be good for me. Plus a deadline helps me get into the studio at night vs sitting around.

what a great goal. Love that stack of boards and gesso!
