Final days of the 365 day challenge

31 Dec

Well I have reached the final weeks of the year. I have managed to create a postcard every single day this year. There were a few days that the postcard example was quite minimal and not really very good. There were days when I went to bed and realized I hadn’t done my postcard so had to get up and scrounge in the studio for something I could use. There were days when I used the postcard for another challenge as well. Sometimes I really didn’t like what I did, but I shared it anyway because it was about the process not the product.

But I am happy to say that I did finish the year!  Did you complete your own 365 days of art challenge?

I hope you enjoy the final days of my challenge. Apparently this was a month of shiny stuff. Lots of photo paper, yupo paper, glitter and sparkly stuff – which doesn’t really photograph very well.

 

I have enjoyed doing the 365 days of art challenge the last couple of years. I have managed to do ‘something’ every single day for my challenges. I have learned that it is important to do something creative or artistic or playful every day – it really does feed the soul. I have learned that just finding a small amount of time every day is possible – so I wonder what else is possible?

However, I am not going to do this challenge again. Or at least not every single day. While I am happy to have done what I did do, it isn’t really serving me any more. The little bits of fun I have every day is fun – but it isn’t really making art. I really want to be able to make more art in the upcoming year. And to do that, I have to devote more time and attention to actually making art, not just filling the time with something playful.

What does that look like? Do I commit to making art every day? Every week? Every month? I’m not sure I can control it that much. Or I’m not sure I want to control it. I’d love to have it be more fluid, more natural, more exploration and experimentation and just following my heart. This is part of my word of the year too. Devoting more time to making art is a part of it.

Did you get a postcard from me this year? I did send out a few random postcards over the year. I know my intention was to send out LOTS of them, but I didn’t really do that. If you want one of my postcards, I am happy to send you one. Just send an email to dlprewitt@hotmail.com  with the subject line POSTCARDS, and give me your full mailing address and I will send you one.  Or you can leave your info here if you want. 🙂

My Word of the Year 2016

20 Dec

I don’t do New Year Resolutions anymore. Instead I choose a Word of the Year. The Word finds itself into all aspects of my life – sometimes in ways that are unexpected. I’ve been doing it for quite a few years now and can say that it has been quite rewarding to do.  Usually I have clearly decided my Word of the Year by this time. But this year I haven’t really been able to zero in on my word quite so easily.

I’ve been searching and paying attention to words, but nothing has been super obvious to me. I’m not sure why I make it so difficult to choose my Word of the Year? Do you have the same problem?

 

So I am just picking a word. One of the words off my list. And that is going to be it. I know I can change it later if I want to.

me

My word for 2016 is ME.  I want to spend more time working on ME. From exercising more, to eating better, to making more art, to getting more sleep, to doing more of the things that I love to do. We often put ourselves near the bottom of the list – everyone else comes first. But you really can’t be there for others if you are not taking care of yourself first (there is a reason the flight attendant tells you to put your oxygen mask on before helping others).

 

So now I have made my decision. Have you made yours? Please share below and let’s see if we can support each other during the upcoming year.

Weeks 39, 40, 41 of 365 days of Art

15 Nov

As you know, I have lost 2 weeks worth of postcards along with my camera. I have searched high and low for them and cannot find them anywhere. Sigh. So I bought a new camera and I am skipping 2 weeks worth of postcards and sharing the next 3 weeks (39, 40, 41). When and if I ever find those missing 2 weeks, I will post them as well.

I feel like I wasted a lot of time and energy trying to find the missing postcards and camera, so now it is time to just move on.

So, here are 3 weeks worth of postcards to try to catch you up. Enjoy!

Here are weeks 35 and 36 of the 365 days of Art challenge. I do believe I am caught up now. Ha Ha

I love seeing the trends that naturally occur. Lots of water color postcards this time because I seem to be in love with watercolor right now.

Weeks 30 and 31 of the 365 days of art challenge

18 Aug

At least I think we are on weeks 30 and 31 now. I’m a bit behind in sharing my photos on the blog, but I swear I have been doing the postcards every single day. I admit that some days I find something in my studio that is already mostly done or I color in one of the preprinted postcards, but I really do one postcard every day. You can always find the daily postcards on facebook or instagram.

Here are two more weeks of postcards. Enjoy!

Have you been doing your own 365 days of art challenge? How is that going for you? Easy? or a Struggle?

Weeks 27, 28 and 29

26 Jul

Here I am sharing weeks 27, 28 and 29 of the 365 days of art challenge. I am doing postcards, which are fairly easy and quite fun to do. Perhaps I didn’t really challenge myself too much by choosing the postcards, but I’m sticking with it and doing them every day and that is what matters.

Weeks 22, 23, 24 of the 365 days of art challenge

5 Jul

Catching up with my blog posts. Today I am sharing weeks 22, 23 and 24 of the 365 days of art challenge. I’m doing a postcard a day. Just some little bit of art or color each day. Some weeks there is continuity and some weeks there isn’t. I don’t plan these ahead of time, just do what I can each day.  Sometimes I am working on something else and have scraps or bits left over. Sometimes I find some leftover bits from my studio and use those. I do use lots of words. 🙂
