Day 1 - 100 Day Project

Day 1 Got up this morning for first time in my life at 5:20 am. I'm NOT a morning person at all and I love my sleep. But this is the perfect opportunity to commit to getting up and "being there" just like this project is intending. It's only the first day - you have energy, lots of optimisim and a "go-get" attitude. I am not that idealistic, I know I will not want to do this and also I know life will get busy and I'll probably forget, etc. But patting myself on the back, just for today, I showed up.

I'm participating in the 100 Day Challenge through The Great Disconnect with Elle Luna starting April 6th!

I'm going to create 1 painting in 20 minutes every day for 100 days.

What Is the 100-Day Project? It’s a celebration of process that encourages everyone to participate in 100 days of making. The great surrender is the process; showing up day after day is the goal. For the 100-Day Project, it’s not about fetishizing finished products—it’s about the process.

I love to show stuff like this - I wanted to open up my gray chalk paint and I fumbled the lid and out came BLOBS of paint on my painting! But that's the fun of it. I had to work with it and take from that. It was a lot more gray paint then I was intending. And to be honest, the image above not digging it -- it's really busy, all over the place and there's a lot going on in this little space. But that's OK. This is not about making great artwork. It's about the process and just doing it.
