Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days
I hesitated to include this as it is not a finished project, just a preliminary sketch. It took so long, however, that I decided the hours spent coloring made it worth including. The reason for the sketch is a much bigger project.
Fort Collins, CO has some really great programs that support local artists. One of them is Pianos About Town. Artists are selected to paint a piano that is then left around town for people to play. I love the idea. The pianos are really colorful and create a great, friendly atmosphere. The other bonus is that selected artists are given a stipend to complete the project. I’m not sure when I find out whether I’ll get to paint one of these or not, but I think it would be a pretty fun project.
Wonderful project idea… good luck with that
Thanks so much, Jo!
Color and music we need in cities! I can see your sketches on the piano project :)
What a wonderful idea – and a challenge to think in 3D! Your colours are looking great, no-one would miss your piano…
Painting pianos sounds like an excellent project, Micah. Whimsy and music . . . hmm . . . Good luck going for it. :-) A public piano makes me think of the scene from Big, where Tom Hanks in FAO Schwartz plays Chopsticks, jumping on the keys with Robert Loggia. Fun, fun, fun!//mm
Yes we do! Thank you so much.
It was fun to brainstorm. Thanks, Anna!
I love that scene! Thank you!
This is really gorgeous!
Thanks so much for the comment, Lily!
