#The100DayProject - A few thoughts after the first week

Happy Wednesday! The first week of the #The100dayproject is in the bag and I have a few thoughts to share about this experience so far. To remind you, for my #The100DayProject I'm creating 100(!) small abstract oil/acrylic/mixed media paintings (some of my favorites may end up in my shop...)

#100DayProject - first few days

1. It's SO much harder than I thought it would be.

2. I've spent an average of two hours a night trying to create these abstract paintings. This is the most consistently I've ever painted.

3. The first few days were really difficult for me. I wanted to quit on day three.

4. I feel that I like the process of creating something "abstract" better when I have a plan (does that even make any sense?)

5. I'm way too hard of myself and I'm my worst critic. I'm having a difficult time letting go of perfectionism and just letting a piece be what it wants to be.

6. It's been a week and I am finally relaxing and starting to have a little bit of fun.

I'm going into this week with more of an open mind. We'll see how it goes! Check out my Instagram, where I post my #The100dayproject everyday. I'd love to see you there.

Are you participating in the #The100dayproject this year? How's it going for you? Do you need some motivation/encouragement? Let me know in the comment section below!

Have a great day!
