30 Days of Art in October



Day 1 of 30 days of Art

So I have decided to join the 30 Days of Art with Traci Bunkers in October.  Basically I am committing to do art every single day in October.  I will be posting every piece to my flickr account and will blog about a few pieces.  I will try and post here but I have other stuff I need to share with you as well so I'm playing it by ear.  I commit to creating art every single day in October.  Here are my rules:
  • I'll make art every day for the month of October and post to my flickr.
  • I will dedicate at least 30 minutes to creating or finishing something.
  • I will not feel obligated to finish anything. I will only do what I am allowed.
  • I will share the mediums and tools I've used.
  • I will try a new technique once a week.

I am very excited to be on this journey.  I have never committed to doing art, although I try and do something everyday, this is my goal.  I hope you will be inspired to either make something or finish what you may already have started. Here is a list of all the participants. Check out all the artists joining Traci and myself.

Blessings my friends.

This piece I drew the face first then added antique paper to the black areas and then used blue ink on top of it. (First Picture)
I then thought it too dark and spray painted the word LOVE into her neck area. (Second Picture)
I went over board with the stamps and completely killed it.  So I took black and white gesso and made her into a Dualistic Love Goddess.  I will probably go in after it all dries and write on her hair.  We'll see.
