I did a thing for 100 (more like 300) days...
I saw this trend going around the socials and thought ‘yep, that sounds fun, now would be a good time to do this’ as Brent and I embarked on our travels last Fall...
raw moment here - finishing something is a big deal in my life, when it happens I celebrate, hence a blog post about this...
Saying yes and sticking through this little art experiment was a good thing for me and I wanted to share a few reasons why in hopes that you too may consider it or something similar -
- It is now super fun for me to scroll back through the hashtag I used #jojo100days and be reminded of days or projects I’ve already forgotten about almost serving as a mini timefreezing portal. It is also fun to notice self-growth and I like seeing certain themes in my art practice progress over time
- I found myself craving to not be limited to one medium (I think I could do it now, but back when I was just starting out, limiting myself to only paints would have been boring for me) but I really enjoyed using whatever tool was at my disposal while in foreign countries.
- This challenge felt really playful, I don’t know about you but I think it is reaaaal easy for artists to take ourselves a little too seriously sometimes, it’s easy to get lost in the logistics, goals, vision, projects, etc. And this space was life-giving at it gave me a sense of freedom to share even a loose sketch at a beach, or colors mixed together in my sketchbook, or an interesting photo that I felt was magical - keep it light, keep it playful
So there you have it, friends. My journey with #100daychallenge comes to a close. Below are some favorites of mine from the discipline. Now I am dreaming about what is next, and please let me know if you have any fun ideas :) xo jo
