AND PAINTING #365:
What's the Process?
Create a realistic painting on 4x4" rounded-corner "coasters" (heavy card stock) every day for a year.
The maximum (creation) time limit per painting is 1 hr. & each are done a day ahead of posting.
Every day of the week has a theme with occasional bonus paintings thrown in.
In the past, I'd just wing my 365 projects and rapidly run out of ideas. Devising a new object every day becomes exhausting fast, leading to dread, and that doesn't jibe with happy art-making. This time I'm out-smarting myself with several pre-emptive moves - a one-hour time limit per day for painting creation, creating the paintings a day in advance (so I'm not posting them the day-of at 11:59pm), a stockpile of 400 sheets of paper already "torn down" to the perfect uniform size, the themes you see below, and a veritable cornucopia of references that I amassed before the project started.
What are the Themes?
What's the End Game?
