30 Days Challenge

There’s a challenge in January to paint 30 Paintings in 30 Days that I’ve been thinking about joining.

One problem, I don’t paint.

But that’s ok, the challenge says there are no rules πŸ˜‰ So I took them at their word, and signed up anyway. Polymer clay relief sculptures are just highly dimensional paintings anyway, right?

My own guidelines for this:

  • Finished is better than perfect.
  • Small, simple, whimsical. I’m not picking a particular theme this time around but I’m going to let my inner child play and have some fun with this.
  • Previously started work is fair game. I have a few bits and pieces laying around that I may incorporate or rework.
  • Failure is fine. I want to try out a few experiments on small pieces. If they come out terrible, at least I’ll have tried.
  • Flexibility is allowed. I may not finish a piece every day. I may start two pieces and finish them the next day… Or if I get involved in something and it takes a week, that’s ok, as long as I’m actually working on it and not procrastinating.

So, wish me luck and we’ll see how it goes… First step – clear a spot on my sculpting table.

This sounds ambitious, Christy! But if anyone can do it, especially the way you’ve made it flexible for real life, you can. I agree, You may be doing 3D figures, but you’re painting on them!
And I’m so glad to know that it’s not just MY work table/area that looks like that… πŸ˜‰

Thanks! I figure even if I only do a few pieces I’ll be ahead of the game, so I’ve got nothing to lose.

And you should see the REST of the room πŸ˜‰
