In 2016, I decided to participate in the 100 Day Project, which is a community-driven initiative to create and share whatever you choose every day for 100 consecutive days. I chose to paint small 4" x 4" watercolor paintings, and grew to really love and respect the discipline it takes to be creative everyday.
I learned a lot from this project:
- 100 days is a LONG time. It's a real commitment.
- You will make work you aren't always excited about or proud of, and that's ok because it's part of the process. In fact, being able to push past mediocre work is essential to making great work.
- If I make one piece I am proud of at the end of 100 days, my time was well-spent.
