Choose a creative theme.
And then keep going for 100 days.
That is the idea of the 100 Day Project: simple, and difficult. A challenge of creativity and resilience.
So far, I didn't postpone a day. Some days are good, some are okay, some days bring suprise inspiration.
Today is day 66/100. It feels like a colorful milestone. The video above shows the first 25 mandalas in a slideshow. And today (in lovely timing for the 2/3-of-the-way-date) an 100 Days interview with me went online. This is part of the 100 Creatives Podcast series, and it features questions and answers about creativity, inspiriation, and my 100 days project :)
Here are some more links, to celebrate:
- The place that turned into a creative stream of 100 day art shared on instagram: #the100dayproject
- My 100 days theme is "Mandalas", click here to see the mandalas so far
- My instagram account (currently a combination of a mandala each day, and a photo): lifeasjourney
About my 100 days:
The plan is to experiment with the process: combine painting and mixed media, and also collage elements and digital processes.
Plus, as mandalas are symbols of positivity and gratitude, and as I felt a bit low in the last weeks moodwise, I am combining the theme with gratitude.
Since a longer while, I plan to update / relaunch my website.
It probably isn't just coincidence that I worked on that parallel to the 100daysproject.
There are still some things I want to add, and so it's still a work in progress (like almost all things), but it's online now:
