I've had great debates inside my head about participating in this 100 day challenge along with a great many creatives, as I am already knee deep in my own 365 day kitchen challenge + work + family + life, BUT I decided to dive in. In part, I've had this idea for how to experiment in the abstract, as I've done little to no work in that area, and what better way than with a community of people trying new things.
The challenge is organized by Elle Luna and The Great Discontent (read more here) and they invite anyone and everyone to participate and share their 100 days, each day.
For my project, I will depict, in great abstraction, what I (or possibly a family member) wore the prior day. I predict much blue and gray. I'm making it "easy" on myself by making it mixed media - ie whatever materials are nearby. I predict much blue and gray. I'll post the outcome daily on Instagram. Follow me there if it sounds fun! I'll have some updates on my blog as well.
Day 1: Yesterday was Easter, thus my very floral, not so typical-of-me, top. The chill in the air called for a sweater and I wore this with dark jeans and black shoes...
Here we go! #100daysofworeit
I've taken a photograph of each of my subjects in my so-far 157 days of making a daily illustration, which serve a few purposes. First, I can see a history of the actual vs painted item and that's just fun. Second, it is MUCH easier for me to draw a subject that has already been 2-dimensionalized (not a word!) through the flat image. And, third, it is sometimes night when I get down to painting, so a brightly-lit reference is very helpful.

I am officially just over the 1/3 mark of my "365 Days in My Kitchen" series. When I started, my sister-in-law asked me if I was worried about running out of things. Nah...I said. Now, I'm not so confident. Despite these three illustrations, I think produce will be my saving grace.
