Yesterday concluded my “#30DaysArt” project. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you may have seen the images that I posted.
The daily art updates don’t really tie into the travel aspect of my website but they do tie into the freedom I’ve found in moving to Thailand. I have free time and I make art with it! I spent so much time working back in the States that I typically felt too exhausted to consider art. The art I’ve created here is a concrete example of how my mind has UNwound and I’ve reclaimed my time!
Sure, there were a lot of days in the month where I didn’t want to make art. I didn’t want to try to come up with an idea, or do much of anything, but it was very helpful knowing that I “had” to. I tasked myself to post something daily and that helped keep me focused. **Thanks to the many of you who gave me feedback, I really appreciated the encouragement!**
In the end, I really enjoyed having art be a part of my day and now I am really looking forward to keeping it up. They say to learn any new habit, you need to do it for 30 days and so far so good! I was out all day today and coming home I was already thinking about what I would make. It’s now a “given”, even though I don’t “have to”.
But I will, because now I can think of art as a symbol of the time that is mine once again!

Link to the #30DaysArt Page with my original challenge to myself. (I am proud to say I met the challenge, so will NOT be massaging any feet. *happy dance*) On that page, selecting any one of the images, will open it and show more details about it, including my rating of how I felt about it.
