Happy Friday Friends! Do you have fun plans this weekend? Im going to be antiquing and resting and taking more time in the studio. But before I go, I wanted to share with you a little project challenge with you that I am giving myself this year. Inspired by Lisa Congdon and her "Collection a Day", I am challenging myself to paint, collage, draw, or design one quote a day for the next 365 days. Each day I will upload said quote to this file in my flickr account. And of course I will keep you updated here weekly. Im excited for this new direction in my work and for the challenge it will afford (with you as my witnesses).
So thank you for your love, support and continued encouragement. I share with you because you have shared with me. Thank you for your glorious comments to my GS survey this week. Your words are invaluable. So.... here is the fun part of the challenge. It involves you! If you would like to collaborate with me in this project, then leave your favorite quote in the comments I will post it next week! And each consecutive week you will have an opportunity to leave your quote and become an artistic collaborator. You can leave any message of inspiration. From your grandma to Martin Luther King, Jr. or your own golden words (those are the best and I know you can do it 'cause I have seen some pretty powerful stuff from you in the past here in the comments).
So are you ready for this fun creative project?? Let's get started!
