I asked myself what I wanted to accomplish. I also listened to my heart to hear what it was telling me.
1. Loosen up. By that I mean get my head out of must look like/ubber tight
2. A consistent or progressive direction.
3. Use supplies I already have. Money being tight and having a gazillion art supplies already. To use what I have on hand.
4. Storage is an issue for canvases. So paper. I have 2 drawers full in my flat file with acid free folio paper. 22x30
A few months ago I bought Steven Aimone's book expressive drawing.
So here is my plan. Using folio paper taped to a large canvas or other support I will work my way through Steven's book.
My month of 30 paintings and exploration into expressive drawing; a departure from realism while refueling my creative soul.
(I am sure my fingers may find their way into the application of medium)

  1. YEAH, now THAT is my courageous friend and amazing role model - showing how to grab the challenge with both hands and do it in a way that deals with all your 'what ifs' SUPER idea to use a resource you already have (the book) and the supplies you already have, and apply the discipline of the 30 days. I look forward to whatever you choose to share, buddy!
