Last week I posted about the 15 Minutes-a-Day Creativity Challenge. This was my first, full week with the Challenge. So, you ask, how was my first full week in the “Creative Sandbox”? Pretty good. I think I missed one day this week. But, while I missed one day, I spent well over 15 minutes painting each of the other days of the Challenge, so, I figure it all evens out in the end.
As I mentioned in last week’s post, I started with a large watercolor painting of an old rusty vehicle which has a lot of texture. I wish I had started with something a little less challenging that would reflect more progress because I’m an instant gratification kind of gal that way. Don’t get me wrong, I have a lot of patience and generally work pretty slow, but I really want these 15 minutes I carve out of my day to be fun, quick, little exercises in the future. My thinking is that these exercises have the potential of becoming great opportunities for experimenting and learning. And, learning is always a winner in my book. I also see them as opportunities to experiment and add techniques to my proverbial tool belt. Like I said, win all the way around. I am so glad I found Melissa Dinwiddie’s Challenge. I hope you too will find 15 minutes each day to do something creative.
I still consider this week’s watercolor painting a work in progress, but since we’re all friends here, I’ve included my progress so far:
Now, it’s your turn. Did you work on something creative this week? If so, let me know what you did.
Have a great weekend. I hope you make some time to create.
