That time I started another challenge, this time for 100 days…

Last October, I began a 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. I only got to 21 completed paintings, but I painted every single day. Huge deal for me. I usually create in fits & starts and my creative practice is a very neglected thing.

This current challenge is #The100DayProject, where you pick an action to do every day for 100 days. The focus is on process and practice, not product, and like I said about my creative practice before, I could use a bit of directed energy towards developing it.

The project began on April 6, 2015 and will continue until the 100 days are up mid-July.

My hashtag for the project on Instagram is #100DaysOfNotSoRealisticFaces, where I’m drawing or painting stylized portraits.

My goals are:

  1. to solidify my daily practice,
  2. hone my skills,
  3. loosen up,
  4. explore and develop my style.

Now, I’m worse at keeping my blog updated so I set up some IFTT recipes so my Instagram photos tagged with my 100 day project hashtag will automatically be published as a new photo post. Yay for lazy blogging!

Here’s days 1 & 2:

The end of the challenge, a few months late.

So there’s been quite a lapse between day 6 and today, February 14. I finished out my 30 paintings in 30 days challenge with 21 paintings. I call it a success because it’s more than I’ve ever painted, and I have a nice collection of art to hang on my walls. Here’s every painting, in some indiscernible order, since I still haven’t figured if this plugin allows me to order the pics.
