Last week on Art With a Needle
Vivien left a comment on my post about daily art: I've always wanted to do a daily art project, but I feel I don't have enough control of my day-to-day to commit to it. Then again, I guess that speaks to the "rules" of the project; how might I define my daily project and what are my objectives. Interesting to read your thoughts on the matter.
And do I have some thoughts! You're right, it all has to do with the rules. You should set rules that work with your day-to-day. If you travel a lot, don't commit to work on the sewing machine every day. If you have to work on your breakfast table, don't choose something that has to be laid out to dry overnight.
If you have limited time, as Vivien alludes to, don't choose a daily task that will take an hour. But how long can it take to make one photograph, or draw in a small sketchbook like this:
or onto a small card like this:
So Vivien, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts -- can you try 30 days of a low-commitment daily art project and see how it works? Let us know.
