Last Sunday was the last day of my summer vacation and totally incidentally also the last day of my 100-day-project. Some say it takes 21 days to form a new habit, others say 28 or 66 days. So 100 days are plenty! I started on April 27 2016 and painted my 100 days all through spring and summer. At home and then later travelling in Montenegro. And I loved, loved, loved it. That love didn’t go away. I wrote about it 14 days into the project and later at 50 moods.
To celebrate the completion of #the100dayproject I put my moods into a movie:
These are all the Daily Moods that I painted when I was at home. For my time of summer travelling I took another sketchbook with me that is a square format. It is filled with daily moods that are heavily influenced by each beautiful place we visited, glorious days at the Mediterranean sea along with other sketches.
So, that’s it? No way! I have formed a creative habit now that I love and turned it into a 365-day-project. This kind of play with colours and shapes in my sketchbook is just too much fun and I want to keep up the daily momentum. While the painting process is all about experimentation, exploration and fun for me and I do it just for the sake of it, these Daily Moods sometimes turn into the beginnings of pattern designs and paintings, may it be for an interesting colour palette, texture or something I would love to explore further. And as each day is a new day, fresh and unique with possibilies for growth, change and happiness, I love seeing these Daily Moods reflecting that.
