Although art is challenging enough in its own right, I love a good art challenge.
Rita Squier of Squier Art & Design has created a challenge for herself, and is documenting her progress on her Blog.
The challenge is this: paint one new painting every day for the month of February, 2010.
February is just getting started, but so far she has painted at least one new one every day. There are even THREE for today, Super Bowl Sunday. Either football is really inspiring to Rita's art, or the Super Bowl gave her a good excuse to go into the other room to paint.
My favorite so far is the Forest Gems ACEO (shown above).
Taylor Mali is a brilliant slam poet. I just rediscovered this bit of his, and I know it holds true as I watch amazing teachers do what they do best every day.
