A new year with new creative possibility!
I have been thinking about what to do for 2019 for a while now, over the past few months I have had serious levels of crazy happening in my life along with my first ever creative block / all around burn out for all things creative and otherwise. I just stopped everything that I possible could and curled up into a tiny ball wanting nothing but silence and darkness. Obviously I had to keep some things going but if you have been here know you are not alone and it is alright to just hit the pause button and recenter and focus on you! If you have never had creative block or burn out I am happy for you and hope you never have to experience it but if you do know others have been there and we will be here if you need a lift up, a kind word or for you when you get back.
What this time gave me was space to think about how to hit the play button on my health, my creative practice and my life. We are mixing things up for 2019, I am in year 5 of this daily challenge and I wanted to get back to how I started it all. My first daily practice was a 30 day challenge where I created every day, for 30 days, with a time box of 30 minutes. This process had me not only creating every day but gave me the focus I needed to get started and made me feel like I didn't have to spend a long time in the studio to create. That feeling of freedom is what I miss, no pressure just play and process. That is the gift I would like to give you in 2019 so lets get into the details!
#DrawRiotDaily January 2019
This year my daily challenge is about making room for you and enjoying the process of creative exploration.
Detail details details!
• Each month will have a main theme word along with 3 key words to spark your creative fire.
• A set of colors that you can use as a jumping off point.
• An art supply to try along with an artistic technique to try.
• (Optional) I will be setting a 10 minute timer for each day to remind me that creativity can be spontaneous and that its ok to just play.
