It is the last day of 2014, and I am getting all excited about a fresh new year, though a little sad too - as it may be the last year of my father's life. Today is also the anniversary of my husband's father's death....so it is an odd time. In many ways, because of this, this is what I am thinking - as I miss painting everyday (as I did in 2013), and I know how much art carries me through the ups and downs of life...and I love challenges, I have decided to set myself a 52 week creativity challenge. I am including the list here so that you can join in with me.
The idea is to pick a prompt from the list each week. You don't need to stick to an order. Choose any medium...drawing, writing, mixed media, sculpting, sewing, audio etc. It can vary from week to week. Let your imagination play. 'Wings' could be about allowing yourself the freedom to do something you love, or angels, or birds, releasing pain, starting a project etc.
I will most likely share my challenge on Facebook at my art page, and on Instagram where I am Orangelimemagenta. We could hashtag 52weeksofplay so we can share the experience. But of course we can just do this quietly, and in private. I haven't quite decided how I will do it myself yet.
Okay. Here is the list:
2.the kitchen table
14.combine two animals to make one
16.from a book you love
17.a quote to live by
22.on your soap box (something you feel strongly about)
23. An outfit
24.5 random items
27. a refreshment
29.beneath the sea
30.something you hope for
31. Use three of your favourite colours
38. Handbag/suitcase contents
39.along the line of a favourite artist
