Art Every Day Month 2019 Sign Up

October 14th, 2019, Comments (47)

Art Every Day Month is once again right around the corner! This will be the 18th year I have been creating daily for the month of November and inviting others to join in. Art Every Day Month (AEDM) is a low pressure challenge for anyone who wants to challenge themselves to create daily for a month. Low pressure means if you miss a day, brush yourself off, and get back to it. No worries. By art, I'm talking a broad view. You could be cooking, taking pictures, dancing, writing music, crafting for the holidays, painting, sculpting, writing poetry, making jewelry, sewing, knitting, art journaling, you name it. You could decide to do a small 2"x2" drawing each day or you could do something different every day. Up to you! I tend to do more drawing and painting because that's what I like, but you can follow your heart. This year, I think I'll mix painting in with children's book illustration. Take some time this month to think about what you might like to work on or just show up and create!

If you're on Facebook, join the Facebook group where you can share your creations as well. If you're on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook you can use the hashtag #arteverydaymonth2019. I'll also have a daily post here starting November 1st, where you can share links to creations you've made. 

Read more about the challenge here and then sign up below by leaving a comment. If you have a blog, website, flickr page, or instagram handle where you'll be sharing, share that below in the Mr. Linky form. If you aren't sharing your work online, then just leave a comment on this blog post saying that you're participating. 

The challenge begins November 1st! 

Creative Every Day Challenge October 2019

October 1st, 2019, Comments (0)

Welcome to October! I hope that you and yours are having a lovely fall. This month's totally optional theme is Empty/Full. I'm imagining playing with negative space, empty bowls, filling a space. See where it takes you!

In my mixed-media pieces, the background and figures are full of imagery. Here's my painting of The Lighthouse. You can read more about this piece and purchase prints here



As a reminder, you can learn more about the Creative Every Day Challenge here and sign up here. There will be a monthly check-in here on the blog and you can also share anytime in the Facebook group. If you share on Twitter or Instagram, feel free to use the hashtag #creativeeveryday2019.
