L'aube des rêves 16"x20" oil on canvas © Shayla Perreault Newcomb.
This painting is about that soft, warm feeling when a dream is first born, we're just letting it glow a little, feeling the wonder, and no critical voices have tried to snuff it out.
November 1 marked the start of the Art Every Day Month challenge. I like the idea of this challenge. It fits with the idea of rituals and habit. Thirty days is what it takes to set a new habit. An art every day habit would keep me in a creative frame of mind, and would hone my skills.
My ms. perfectionist side is not invited. An approach of curiosity, play and humor are going to go a lot further production and happiness wise. That means that some days I may color in a coloring book, scribble, or dance in the kitchen. It doesn't have to be painting.
To keep that perfectionist side at bay, I figured it would be better to keep track in my art journal instead of posting every day. I'll post as per usual.
So far my Art Every Day month has consisted of working on a large oil painting.
