Edit: October 25, 2013 – This project was regretfully abandoned. Boooooooo! I know, it sucks. Here’s the thing: I started this project and then started applying for juried shows that required a specific category designation. I juried for sculpture or mixed media for all of them, so I wasn’t allowed to bring paintings. Spending painting time sculpting became a priority, so I only finished a handful of paintings.
I am satisfied though! There are more paintings that never made it onto this post, so I think I made it to 30. That is at least 3x the number of paintings I managed to finish in 2012! Baby steps!
I will be back in 2014 with a new challenge that I am determined to finish.
I am a crazy person. This has been previously established, but really, I’m a crazy person with evidence of my insanity (aside from that paperwork that I got back in 12th grade from the auditory studies department at the University of Northern Colorado that says my hearing is perfectly fine, so the voices in my head are really just in my head). I have decided to do 300 paintings in 2013. The only thing that proves I haven’t lost it completely is that I nixed the idea of doing a painting every day seeing as it’s already the eighth and I’m finally doing the first one. WHOOPS.
I’ll be updating this post as I go, mostly so I can keep a record of them after they sell or are stolen by gremlins.
