The Day of the Artist is a project I started on January 1, 2014. Initially I was going to do an original painting every day for a year. Then I decided to make it a little more specific. What if I paid tribute to a new artist everyday by doing a painting in the style of their work? I knew it was going to be educating, challenging and fun. I never expected it to be such an interesting psychological experience.
I only had one day to research and finish each painting. Some turned out wonderful and some I wasn't so happy with. Some pieces took 5 minutes and were a breeze to complete and some had me grinding my teeth for most of the day. This project taught me on a daily basis about new techniques and materials. It also taught me about embracing failure and moving on. This journey made such an impact on my life and I am so happy to share it with you!
