Day 1: Art Every Day Month
Alright. I’ve been planning for this all week. I found out about this challenge last Monday, and I set up this blog so I could post my work every day for November is Art Every Day Month. I’m excited about a commitment to make art every day, and posting is my way of holding myself accountable. Here goes!
“The Iris Bed”
Pastel 16 x12
These Iris were a gift from a neighbor. She divided her beds and ended up with 500 extra bulbs and I was lucky enough to be the beneficiary! My husband built a whole new bed for them. It took a few days’ work to get them in the ground, but the show they put on in the Spring was worth it.
I started this painting almost 20 years ago, in 1996. And finished it today, November 1, 2015. That’s why I’m doing Art Every Day in November.
