2018 is Almost Here!


Actual manifestation of me dominating 2018.

Actual manifestation of me dominating 2018.

2017 was quite a ride.  It seemed like 5 different years all rolled into one, but I'm thankful for everything that occurred and the path it has lead me on.  Now that we are on the cusp of 2018 it's time to start planning!

One of my man goals for 2018 is to complete my 365 days of color challenge (see this blog post for all that info fun).  I'll make a blog post every Sunday that lists each object that I will paint on.  This way if anyone wants to join my challenge or anyone that just wants a creative drawing prompt can use this list as well.  

If you do want to be a part of this challeng-- I want to see what you create! Comment below on the blog post each week!! Let me know how your creative journey is going! Every Saturday I will also post a blog with a recap of each week and feature art of anyone else doing this challenge. 

A majority of what I will make each day will be up on my Instagram feed @lifeofapaintbrush (click the cute Instagram camera in the lower right hand corner for a direct link too).

*Queue trumpet music* Painting prompts for January 1st-Jan 6th

  • January 1st - Champagne Bottle
  • January 2nd - Champagne Glass
  • January 3rd - Grapes
  • January 4th - Pomegrante
  • January 5th - Dahlia (flower)
  • January 6th - Daffodil 

The reason I chose these objects are because they all represent either the New Year or new beginnings.  Grapes and Pomegranates are foods eaten around the new year to gain prosperity.  Dahlias and Daffodils symbolize a fresh start and new life.

So what do you guys think?  Let's crack a bottle over the head of 2018 and dominate with our creativity!  Ok... maybe don't actually crack a bottle over anyone's head. 

Go out there, create and be confident!  See you next year! ;)
