I had a fellow art teacher ask me about this whole daily art thing...and I said I would write a blog post. And I did. Well...I started it. Then I let myself get caught up with mid-term exams, holiday shopping, Christmas...and finally the excitement of NYE and knowing that I had completed another full year of making art. But I never 'finished' that document...but here is what I started; Click here. (Beware, it's in 'Jenny-speak'...which means it is all over the place!)
One thing I constantly beat myself up about (and also relish) is my own self-imposed organization and inventory of my work. This is something that I have been doing just for me but now I am actually in the process of doing for Gallery 2014 (Miss Sharon...I am working on it!) . The first year I did the CED Challenge I created an on-line document, kind of a catalog of my work. (CED2012-JLG Artwork) I remember staying up working on that document for a frenzied couple of days...the final day I didn't go to sleep, finished the document then drove to the beach to watch the sun rise. Awesome, right? The only thing is I feel like I should have done that every other year, too...and I havent'...so then I get kinda bummed out.
Maybe I will make a document at some point for 2013 and 2014...but for now I just made a big ol' mosaic of images...this is most of the work, not all of 'em...and ya gotta look really close because there are some mosaics within mosaics...but most of the daily work is there.
Most of it ;)
