Winter Projects

Next to my computer lives a little old school desk, like the ones we used to have at primary school. Usually it's covered in piles of paper and pens and reference books and crumbs, but this is what it looks like when I'm ready to start something new.

It's been so soggy and foggy and miserable here over the past few weeks that the idea of indoor winter art projects is very inviting. I'm trying to discipline myself to stick to one or two and not sign up for everything that looks like fun (hard). The 100 Days Project starts next week - I had a go last year but soon came to a grinding halt because I didn't have a Plan. I just bumbled about doing a few little drawings and hoped for the best, but that lack of strategy was not a success. This year I'm having another stab at it, but this time with a concept in mind. Not sure what yet, but what I think it needs to be is 1/specific 2/small-scale 3/something with an element of surprise so I don't get bored doing the same thing every day. 4/do-able in a short amount of time. Determined determined determined... it's not too late to register, by the way - you can sign up here. Come and join me!
