I've committed myself to "Art Every Day Month". I've been in such a funk lately. And I think it's mainly due to laziness and no personal motivation. So - I'm hoping this will help. I always hold myself more accountable when other people are involved.
I'll be posting something creative a day on my blog. I wish I could commit to something finished a day - but that's not really realistic for me at the moment. So some of them might be unfinished pieces or pages. As long as I pick up a paint brush or write something, I'll consider my day a success.
All of the finished work will be posted here of course.

I've been toying with a few ideas in my head.
One is starting a traveling journal. I've tried to do this for a while. (Once while I was living in Germany, but I never managed to get it off the ground.) So I'm going to give this idea another shot.
But I think I'm going to write up a separate journal for this one.
So excuse the possible journal spam.

The other idea that's been hanging out is something kind of strange. I've wanted to do some kind of public art motivational thing.
Someone was kind enough to show me "you are beautiful", [link]
Which is kind of the same idea. But I want this to be more broad. More open to what the message might be. It can be something as simple as leaving a letter somewhere for someone to find. Or spray painting your message for the entire world to see. But I want to have a place for all of this to pile up. So people could visit and be inspired to do something as well or also just so that idea might be seen by more eyes. The internet is wonderful - and magically makes everything international.
But I'm not sure how to do this yet. A group on DA? Or club? But I don't have the money to fund a subscription. And I know very little about both.
A myspace page maybe? Facebook?
I still haven't decided where to do this.
Any ideas? Words of advice? Thoughts?
