I've gotten all my hand-stitching posted to the new blog I created to document all my daily art. Well, not exactly all -- it often takes me a couple of days to photograph and post the new work, but I do have everything there going back to the beginning of the year. All my daily and weekly photography projects are also there on the new blog. Some day when I'm snowed in or under house arrest I hope to get some of my older daily art projects documented there as well.
|"What shall I do next????"|
Right now, I'm leaning toward collage. I was tempted by a project I read about on the 365 blog in which the artist made a postcard every day, generally with collage elements. I spent several years doing daily postcards and could happily go back to that routine, but decided that I'd rather focus just on the collage aspects. That's the part I find most challenging and interesting, and I think that mailing the art would just add unnecessary complications. (For instance, I'd have to choose recipients. The cards would have to be the right size and thickness. They could have no dangly parts or 3-D elements. Too many extra things to worry about. And postage is going up again next year.)
Still undecided about photography. I'll probably keep Sign of the Week, because that's easy and fun. Not sure I want to do my weekly Photo Suite again next year; the second time around might not be quite as fresh as the first. But I do like the discipline, both of having to find art to post every week, and of having to go out on photo walks as frequently as possible to feed the beast.
I'm open to suggestions!!
