It sure did feel great to finish my 31st piece and to know that I, Jennifer Love Gironda, committed to making a piece of art everyday and actually did it. When I look back on the pieces I can see that the works are more random at first, sticking with a simple, whimsical style that I have worked with in the past that is a safe style for me. As the works progressed I experimented more with shapes and styles, and finally, I allowed some of the figurative work that I had been doing in my newest sketchbook to make an appearance in my CED pieces.
...as if I needed something else to do, right? Wait...I do need something else! I was looking around on-line...thinking about how I needed to make sure that I am drawing and painting and well...just being creative in this new year. I saw some sites promoting 'a drawing a day'...even found a book...but I don't want to feel constrained, feel like I can only draw...I mean...what if I want to make bead or dye some fabric? What of my bedazzling? I found this site; http://creativeeveryday.com. So...created a, well, I guess this is a second blog? Dedicated to posting the CED pieces, so it will be a little different from the regular artistic ramblings..or maybe it won't. I have no idea. I just thought it would be worthwhile to committing to being creative every day...a public commitment with a group of like-minded folks can't hurt, right?
I think I am going to just basically just post the pics on this mini blog...organizing by the month...so each month will have its own post with some thoughts...then a photo gallery for that month.
This month's suggested theme is 'new'. I was thinking, I sure do love new shoes...and this is what I came up with...
