Starting this Tuesday, April 4th, I'll be participating in#The100DayProject where I will be doing a new watercolor every day for 100 days. You can participate too - all you need to do is to commit to a creative act for 100 days and share with us on Instagram - it can be writing, photography, dance, poetry, knitting, anything that you're curious about. This year, my aim is to paint 100 imagined landscapes, places I've dreamed of in my head as a way to explore imagination, work on my watercolor skills, and see what I might come up with. I'm really excited about this project and hope you'll follow along with me at my special hashtag #100ImaginedLandscapes.
PLUS, I will actually be selling all these watercolors as a way to raise money for Bonanza Flats. I'm setting up an Etsy shop where you will be able to find all of the watercolors available for purchase. And all of the proceeds up until June 10th will go to Save Bonanza Flats.
The watercolor shown here is one I did last fall and still haunts me to this day. It came from a place of emotion and magic, rather than just trying to copy a landscape. I'm hoping that I'll be able to find a bit of that magic again in the next 100 days. I will warn you, some of them might be blah or even just so-so. As with any creative experiment, there are bound to be some duds, but my goal is to faithfully post even the crappy ones and not pass judgement on them. *Please note - this watercolor is not for sale, nor will it be as it is in my sketchbook*
Alright, so if you want to learn more about The 100 Day project, head over to www.the100dayproject.org, follow along with the hashtag to see what everyone else is doing and help keep me motivated over the next 100 days.
