This is not necessarily an original idea.

There are already several blogs dedicated to this very thing but I am happy to report that I successfully completed Part 1 of this project in 2007 (scroll down and beyond on this very blog to see). Creating a little something everyday, integrating creativity into daily life without becoming paralyzed.

Coffee in the morning. Walking the little dog. Brushing your teeth. Getting the mail. A 2" x 2" square of something with marks on it made by hand.

This exercise lead to several breakthroughs in my studio practice, the result was several bodies of new work.

In 2011 it is time to revisit this idea and see where it goes. To call it a drawing, painting, or a collage suggests weight. This endeavor is to be weightless. Part 2.
