I just had a thought that it would be fun to go back to a core practice of daily Journal Painting: One A Day. That is, each day a new journal entry followed by a small spontaneous painting. I did this for years, but stopped for some reason and now miss the way this simple habit creates a creative scaffold in my life. After this idea popped into my mind, I opened an email from Cory Huff at The Abundant Artist and found a link to Crystal Moody’s creative habit challenge http://crystalmoody.com/ She has been doing a painting a day for over a year as a way to dive into a more artful life, one she hasn’t enjoyed since art school. As an aside, I love the way she photographs her paintings with her meals. Art is like food for the soul isn’t it?
I’ve decided I am jumping into a One A Day practice and will post my paintings below in the comments area. Anyone else want to join me? It would be fun to share together.
Here is my Day 1 painting entitled pods.
