Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days
I have never been good at estimating how long something is going to take me. If I tell you I should be able to accomplish a task in 20 minutes, you can basically guarantee I will be done with it in no less than one hour. Such has been the case with my arting over the last few days. Everything seemed to take much longer than anticipated. This is why I was pretty darned excited to sit down with pen and paper last night, with no concrete plan or timeline and just create.
The results are these three 4 x 6″ drawings. Starting with the blue piece, which is collaged insides of business envelopes, I created geometric shapes and then began filling the white space with repeated, thin lines. Liking the line thing so much, I moved on to the flowers, which are collaged wrapping paper. Lastly I moved onto drawing geometric shapes and filling the shapes with the woven lines. The line patterning seems to give the pieces depth and texture – something I find I really enjoy. nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
As for how long these took me? I’d estimate about 20 minutes ;). nnn
All three pieces available for purchase. nn
These are great – when you just ‘play’ and let inspiration flow, amazing things happen! =D
Thanks! I enjoy the process of creating just to create from time to time. As a person who knows absolutely nothing about neuroscience, I think “playing” allows the brain to shift to and look at things differently.
