Sharing my Instagram Feed here so you can see my most up-to-date art.

I recently completed The 100 Day Project – creating a piece of art for 100 days. I only skipped a few days. It was a great exercise in discipline and determination.

The Hundred Day Project

On Jan 31, I started The Hundred Day Project. It’s a challenge for makers to create an artwork each day for 100 days. (Note the creation could be artwork or anyting else – poem, writing, etc.)

So we are at Feb. 27 and I have created 28 small works. My “guide” for myself is the size of the work (4 in. by 4 in. square) and substrate (paper of some kind).

I feel good that I have kept up — so far — and been able pull out different materials I have not been using. I have done some collages, painted papers, stamping/stenciling and using iZink Ice from Aladine (colors from Seth Apter’s collection).

See below thumbnails (click for slideshow) for some of the artworks I have made so far! Follow me on Instagram @cmiller237 for an image each day. Or on my Facebook art page @greencottagestudio.

Love is in the Air

It’s February and our thoughts turn to love. Love doesn’t have to be romance – all hearts and flowers.

Love can be a warm fire, a blanket and a cuppa. Love can be your passion for art and creating.

Love can be your passion for nature. . . so this month think about love from all angles.

Below is a small collage – 4 in. by 4 in. – for my #100DayProject.

Playing with the heart theme…

For my Art Journal online class – called Wanderlust 2021 – I did a two-page spread in blues because I was thinking about where the pandemic has left many people – with broken hearts.

Art Journal pages – collage, paint, iZink glaze, white pens, etc.
