365 Project – March Review

My 2017 Project - Creating a piece of artwork based on a pre-1970's photograph for every day of the year and sharing it on Instagram.

This month I found myself becoming a bit bored. As my photo collection dwindled and the amount of drawings increased, something happened. I think I’ve become more creative with the images! The works have become more colorful, and I’ve been incorporating pattern and geometric backgrounds – which I quite enjoy! I’m wondering if spring might be having an influence on my palette.

[ If you’re interested in this project – I’m updating daily over on Instagram – plus, you’ll get bonus pictures of my cats, who doesn’t love pictures of cats!? Click here to jet over to Insta and follow along! ]

The close up portraits have become more polished, and take much less time, while I continue to be more expressive in the images with smaller figures.


I’ve also been very mindful of image content – trying not to post too many of a single type of image in a row. (close up portrait, expressive landscape, etc..) When I look at the portraits from this month as a whole I see a lot more variety this month.
As much as I grew in February I had quite a few days where I struggled, and posted quite a few images that I wasn’t confident in. ( On the flip-side I did post some of my best images up to that point) This month I posted the most images that I was happy with! Getting into April I’m having the most fun thus far! Stay tuned!
Interested in purchasing any of these images, or images from previous posts? Images #1-80 are now listed for sale on Etsy! I put a lot of effort into finding good quality framing materials at a low cost so I could pass on those savings to you! It’s important to me that I share my art in a way that brings art to more people, and keeping my art affordable is a huge part of that!
