Must...start...first...art...of...2013! But I am going a little crazy right now, slightly distracted by everything...might have been the coffee...created weekly art challenge for 2013 (see below)...working on a 'year in review' document of my work from 2012 to showcase what I made and also to be used for a goal I set in 2013 (maybe I will blog about that at a later date, I a too scared/excited about it right now!)...and at some point I really have to unpack and clean...
So...uh...here is my thought process..hear me out...
I am committing to the Creative Every Day Challenge again for 2013. It really helped me get off my bootie and start making art. I enjoyed being a part of a larger group of artists with the same goal- to be creative every single stinkin' day. I am gonna do it again. Per usual Jenny-style, I will be creating one piece per day within a monthly theme. I checked and the theme for this month is 'dark'. Hmmmm...dark, huh? I have some thoughts milling around in my head but I won't know where I am going to go with this until I sit down with my paper...so we will see what happens.
In addition to the CED Challenge, I will be hosting a 52-week challenge via Art Hive Magazine called the BEE52 Art Challenge. This will be seperate from the CED Challenge. For me, I will still work within a (separate) theme, but I will allow myself to work a little bit at a time, without the (self-inflicted) stress of creating a daily work. Some thoughts I have had for this include focusing on specific artists for the month...or getting back to my fiber-work...or maybe some collaborations...
...and...I still want to continue with my fashion illustrations...I can't stop. I love them too much.
At some point I will also be teaching art, coaching cheerleading...and my cheer judging season is starting...ummm...it's gonna be busy. Very, very, busy.
And I can't wait! 2013 has arrived!!
