Hi.

I'm Cait Sherwood, a mixed-media painter who works into art journals.

I make art from the trash of the art I made before.

APRIL: WEEK 3

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.
