The 70 Days Art Challenge
I was totally inspired by Vincent Van Gogh and his last days. He created 70 pieces in 70 days before ending his life. I find this incredible that someone so lonely found beauty all around him and couldn't wait to paint it each and every day. In 10 years he created more than 2,000 works, impressive right? His story is tragic but his art lives on for all of us to admire and get lost in his magical brush strokes over and over again. 
I thought it would be a great challenge to push ourselves to find beauty all around us and create (sketch, paint, draw, doodle) for 70 days straight. I see this as an artistic practice that is meant to put us in the moment, give us time to play, practice and try new ways to capture what is in front of us. It is not meant to be great pieces of art, it is a way to get us to do, to see, to create without perfection. Spending 10-15 minutes each and every day will give us the practice needed to connect with our inner artist and let her explore the everyday surroundings of your life. 
I will provide a PDF for prompts and how to get started plus random videos on a variety of quick and easy techniques to capture what is in front of you without a lot of fuss. We will be working small approx. 4"x4.5" and perfection is not what you are going for. This is all about practice, doing and being inspired to create art every day. I do hope you will join me!
