Day 364, 4 z 6″ ink and watercolor on paper
Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days
As this 365 project has neared the end, quite a few people have asked if I have anything special planned for day 365. The answer, I am quite content to say, is no.
I began this project because I needed to commit myself to art making. I needed to quit making excuses for why I wasn’t creating – the number one excuse being time.
When I began, I had aspirations of spending hours upon hours, every day creating great drawings or paintings; and there were a few days I did. I soon realized, though, there would be days that I would find only 20-30 minutes to focus on art. Initially I felt guilty about those days. As my daily practice continued though, I realized I was improving not in spite of the small amounts of time I could devote some days; but because of it.
Perhaps I don’t have anything special planned because I plan to continue to make art every day. While I won’t blog daily, and I won’t require myself to finish a piece each day, my commitment will continue and I will continue to improve because of it.
