Join me for Mostly Monochromatic (#mostlymonochromaticdg
) – my 100 Day Project for 2019!
I have had such fun with my 100 Day Project the last two years, I'm doing it again this year! In addition to the fun, I have learned a lot about the art I want to make and how I like to make it.
I've been big into black and white for a couple of years now. It feels like it is time for some COLOR! (Fans of the black and white should not despair – I'm definitely NOT giving it up.) I see this 100 Day Project as a way to explore and play with color and all the wonderful emotion it can bring to a piece.
So, here is the plan: I've chosen 11 colors and will be working in a 6" square size. I'll make 9 pieces in each color. They will be Mostly Monochromatic - one contrasting color is allowed, but not required. Each piece will be mounted on a canvas frame. I will be working with one color at a time. The first nine days are RED! What a fun color to start with.
I think all the pieces of one color are going to look great displayed together. As soon as a color is ended, the 9 pieces in that color will be available for purchase as a group for one week. Individual pieces will be priced at $30 each, but the group of nine will be priced at $240 – basically you get one for free! If the group is not purchased during that week, the pieces will be available individually after that.
You may have noticed that I said 9 pieces each of 11 colors – that is 99. What about #100
? I don’t know yet! There are quite a few options for what I could do, but I will wait to decide until the last day is a bit closer.
The 100 Day Project starts January 20 and ends April 29. I will be out of town for the last ten days of the project and I haven't decided how I'm going to handle that yet. I will not be in a position to make work while I'm away so I have two choices – make the work in advance or take a time out from the project for ten days and finish it when I return home. Stay tuned.
The schedule of colors is in the comments below. I hope you’ll follow along! #mostlymonochromaticdg
