An artistic friend from high school, who made her career teaching art, contacted me and offered a chanllenge. 50 pieces of art in 1 year. Project 50/1, on Facebook, started in August 2009. The page has about 8 artists participating, painters, potters, collage artist, metal smith and I’m contributing lettering.
My personal challenge is 4 pieces per month plus 2. I’m working in four piece series, which to me means I have four pieces going at the same time and finishing at the same time. I like this process because it allows me to practice and refine as I finish. The personal monthly deadlines also keeps me working steadily.
My media of choice is casein paint on canvas with acrylic and sharpie pen.
If you use Facebook, become a fan of Project 50/1 and see everyone work, see glimpses into studios and enjoy the process of art. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Project-501/147276986479?ref=mf
This is 4/30 for me and only 46 to go.
