A few years ago 5 artists friends and I got together for Projects 40. This link below will talk you to my results. We all followed a set list if 40 ideas/assignments. 5 all-day-long days creating these 40 explorations pushed me out of my comfort zone and into a invigorating creative bliss ~ my own rules were to use unfamiliar materials and unfamiliar techniques. Sometimes frustrating, sometimes suspiciously easy but in the end … very worth while.
