These days, I've still been art journaling. And I decided to participate in The 100 Day Project. To play, you pick something and commit to it for 100 days. I am making 100 tiny paintings, which I post to my Instagram each day. These paintings totally emerge from my art journaling. My art journaling remains the foundation, or the soil.
I think making 100 tiny paintings is ambitious. I don't always follow through with my goals, so we'll see what happens. I feel invested though. Since I work in a multi-layered process, the key will be to have a batch of them in process at all times, so I can "finish", or let go of one each day.
Here are the images for Days 1 & 2. These are small wooden canvas panels, and the background you see is my art journal. I use the journal as a palette when I paint these little guys. Also I generally get ideas for paintings through the process of art journaling. The difference seems to be that when I paint on a panel or canvas, I approach with an idea. When I paint into my art journal, I just begin.
I began The 100 Day Project a day or two behind, so I will be catching up at some point soon.
