100 drawings in 100 days

i am on a mission to complete 100 drawings in 100 days. there are several reasons for this:

1. i need the practice

2. i need the discipline

3. i have heard of something similar, and thought it was a fabulous idea, to keep me occupied creatively and my mind alert toward art

4. it's just like journalling, only with images

today is day 5 of the 100 paintings in 100 days. i still have today's drawing to do, but there's still 6 hours left of today... lets see if i can successfully upload the ones i've done so far...

i have yet to upload yesterday's image, so i will do today's at the same time later tonight.

stay posted and i will upload the new images each day.

i will also be posting them each day on my website . this might be a little while, please bear with me as i am re-doing my website myself. this will be interesting, but hopefully well worth the effort! i need to be able to add to my site - it's hard depending on someone else to do it when you are ready to do it.

stay tuned!

about becoming business savvy...

i am reading alyson stanfield's "i'd rather be in the studio". i've just started, but would like to write out some of my responses, and seeing as how i might be inclined to lose said scratch-pad, i thought it might be of benefit to blog it...

about sticking your neck out
i think the fear of success is greater than the fear of failure in my art career. however, having said that, i still do imagine a successful art career as being a most treasured goal. i want it more than i can say, but it does scare me a little.
the worst thing that can happen is that i stay exactly where i am now, which is not that bad. i'll just have to rent for the rest of my life....
the best thing that could happen is that i am a household name - like andy warhol, or picasso, or da vinci; i would be able to hire people in my own gallery while i am travelling around the world, gaining inspiration for the next series of fabulous sell-out paintings! the best thing is that i could live the life i dream about.
is it worth sticking my neck out? i think so. don't you?

so, how do you feel since reading this blog?
