I started 2016 with one goal - to discover myself as an artist. I made a promise that I would make a painting every day and post it to Instagram, even if it sucked. And so, my personal painting-a-day project, 365 Squares, was born.
365 Squares has allowed me to meet and chronicle a consistent goal of finishing one painting every day. Even if everything else fell apart, if I put paintbrush to paper, I could count at least one success. It has only ever been about the process - never perfection. It’s been about exploration, determination, and about proving to myself that YES, I can do this.
I did put a few boundaries in place. Every painting must be 6x6, numbered, and posted on Instagram in chronological order. That’s it. These “rules” gave me just enough direction to freely create and just enough peer pressure to ensure I didn't quit.
The journey has been equally enlightening and exhausting - and so worth it.
